C4 flies the flag for Britain at Rose d'Or

Jessica Rogers, Broadcast

The Brits dominated this year's Rose d'Or awards with Channel 4 programmes scooping five of the 12 awards up for grabs.

The opera special prize went to Tiger Aspect's Man on The Moon. Written by acclaimed British composer Jonathan Dove it explored the complex story of Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon.

Tiger Aspect also triumphed in the best comedy category with The Vicar of Dibley.

Comedy indie Avalon secured the best sitcom award for Not Going Out while S4C's drama Con Passionate became the first Welsh Rose d'Or recipient taking home the gong for best soap.
