By Dominic Schreiber, Broadcast

UK shows picked up a total of 33 nominations ahead of the newly scaled down Golden Rose awards which takes place on May 9.

In the comedy category, Brits picked up eight nominations, with Talkback Thames nominated for two series, Green Wing and Man Stroke Woman, alongside Tiger Aspect's The Vicar of Dibley, Hat Trick's Worst Christmas of my Life, the BBC's That Mitchell & Webb Look, Pett Productions BBC3 series Tittybangbang and World Production's Perfect Day - The Millennium.

Confusingly, the sitcom category sees another five UK comedies up for nomination, including Avalon's Not Going Out, DLT's My Family, ITV production The Royle Family and the BBC's The Thick Of It.

Other UK programmes up for awards include Eastenders and The Bill, in the soap category. This year's Rose d'Or Festival will take place in Lucerne from May 5-9, with comedian Ben Elton set to host the award ceremony.
