Leading indie Red Production Company was the night’s big winner at the Yorkshire Centre Awards, which were held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds towards the end of June.

Red’s hard-hitting police drama Happy Valley picked up a clutch of prizes.

The six-part series, which aired on BBC One last year to critical acclaim and strong audiences, won the awards for Filmed in Yorkshire, Writer (for Sally Wainwright), On-­Screen Performance (Sarah Lancashire) and Drama.

The long-­serving anchor of BBC One regional news programme Look North, Harry Gration, and the Channel 4 daytime show Countdown were both honoured with RTS Yorkshire Centre Awards.

The evening was hosted by Nick Hewer, the current host of Countdown, which has clocked up more than 30 years on C4.

“Once again, the awards reflect just how much skill and talent there is in this region. And, given the quality as well as the quantity of the entries, it’s no surprise that Yorkshire productions across all genres continue to have such a significant impact regionally, nationally and internationally,” said Yorkshire Centre Chair Mike Best.

Emma Glasbey from Look North was named Outstanding Journalist. ITV regional show Calendar picked up the News Programme award for its coverage of the sentencing of Will Cornick, the school­boy convicted of ­murdering his teacher Ann Maguire. Calendar’s Vidhi Doshi was named One To Watch.

The Miners’ Strike and Me, made by Shiver for ITV, won the Factual Programme prize. The Leeds-based ­factual entertainment specialist also took the Independent Spirit award.

The Factual Series winner was Junior Vets (True North Productions for CBBC).

The award for Promotion or Commercial Production went to Roger Keech Productions for When the Tour de France Came to Yorkshire.

Children of the Holocaust (Fettle Animation for BBC Learning) took both the Animation and Visual Effects and the Made in Yorkshire awards.

Rocket won the Second Screen Award for the website of C4’s Embarrassing Bodies: Live from the Clinic.

The Yorkshire Centre made craft awards to lighting cameraman John Anderson, Look North’s Alistair Candelin (Professional Excellence: Production) and True North Post (Professional Excellence: Post-Production).
