ITV1 NAMED TERRESTRIAL CHANNEL OF THE YEAR

ITV1 has been named terrestrial channel of the year for the first time at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.

The channel's success was announced on Saturday at the festival's Arqiva Channel of the Year Awards, now in their 10th year.

ITV1 has had particular success this last year with the period drama series Downton Abbey and Coronation Street's 50th anniversary shows.

BBC Three won the digital channel gong.

It is the second year in a row that BBC Three - home to shows such as Young, Dumb and Living Off Mum and the BBC's coverage of music festivals including Glastonbury - has won the accolade.

BBC One's Sherlock won the award for the best terrestrial show.

Sherlock, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the eccentric detective and Dr Watson, also picked up a Bafta television award earlier this year.

E4's The Inbetweeners was named digital programme of the year for the second year running.

The comedy series, starring Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison, has recently been made into a feature film, released in the UK last week.
