Radio 4 won four awards in the radio category from the consumer group which champions public service broadcasting.

Gareth Malone was honoured for his work as a choirmaster and Jon Snow was named best individual TV contributor.

"These awards are a reminder of the excellence of so much of our radio and television, "said VLV chairman Colin Browne.

BBC Two's Face Of Britain, fronted by Simon Schama, was named best arts and entertainment TV programme

Channel 4 News won best TV news and factual programme, and BBC Four was named as Digital TV Channel of the Year.

More than 40 years after it was first broadcast, CBeebies' reboot of Clangers was named best children's TV programme.

Radio 4 won best drama and comedy programme with Book of the Week, best news and factual programme for From Our Own Correspondent, best music and arts programme with A Good Read and best individual contributor for James Naughtie who presented the station's Today programme until December last year.

Classic FM won digital radio station of the year.

"As politicians and regulators plot the future of public service broadcasting in the UK, it is timely to remember that what really counts is the quality and diversity of the programmes available to listeners and viewers," Browne said.

The VLV is an independent membership association that campaigns for quality and diversity in British broadcasting content.
