The Awards honour excellence in key genres of television programming, from children's to drama, entertainment and soaps, to comedy performance and documentaries, covering both national and regional output. Held annually, the RTS Programme Awards aim to recognise the work of exceptional actors, presenters, writers and production teams, as well as celebrating the programmes themselves.

The Awards will be hosted by award-winning comedian, writer and actress Jo Brand, at a ceremony on Tuesday 19 March at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
