The Olympic theme featured widely in this year’s South Bank Sky Arts Awards, announced this week in London – the seventeenth year of the awards, but only the third in conjunction with Sky Arts.

The BBC picked up the comedy prize in the TV category for the mockumentary series Twenty Twelve starring Hugh Bonneville, Jessica Hynes and Amelia Bullmore, and centred on the organisation of the London Olympics.
