OS Michael Palin has been awarded a BAFTA Fellowship

Wednesday 15 May 2013

Presenter, writer and Monty Python star Michael Palin (R, 1957-61) has been awarded a BAFTA Fellowship.

The Fellowship, BAFTA’s highest honour, was presented to Michael by his fellow Python star, Terry Jones, at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards on 12 May, 2013.

Michael said:  'I’m well aware that any success I’ve had is down to team-work. I’ve been blessed throughout my career with the inspiration and support of others. The Fellowship is for all of us.' He went on to say that he felt slightly guilty for accepting an award for thoroughly enjoying himself for the last 48 years. 

A full report can be found on the BAFTA website.
