We’ve launched the P&O Cruises Memorable Moment Award, honouring the impact of television in the UK which has the power to entertain, inform and bring the nation together. BAFTA carefully appoint an independent jury of industry experts to shortlist six TV moments from the previous year. The public voted on their favourite of the six moments shortlisted and the winner was announced during the BAFTA Television Awards with P&O Cruises.

1. Derry Girls

The finale – the people of Northern Ireland vote overwhelmingly for peace

We join the gang as their coming of age coincides with the Good Friday Agreement referendum. Until this point in the show, the Troubles served as a backdrop to their everyday lives but here we see our beloved characters placing a vote for peace and stepping out of the polling station into an unknown future. These final scenes are intercut with archival footage of political figures such as SDLP leader and peacemaker John Hume alongside fellow Derry citizens at the euphoric moment it was announced that a resounding 71.1 per cent of people in Northern Ireland voted yes for the Agreement.

2. Heartstopper

Nick and Charlie’s first kiss

When gentle Charlie and rugby-loving Nick meet at secondary school, they quickly discover that their unlikely friendship is blossoming into an unexpected romance. Charlie, Nick and their circle of friends must navigate the ever-relatable journey of self discovery and acceptance, supporting each other as they learn to find their most authentic selves. Sparks fly at a birthday party where Nick’s friend, Tara, confides in him; inspired, Nick shares his feelings with Charlie, and they grow even closer, resulting in their first kiss.

3. Platinum Jubilee: Party at the Palace

Paddington meets The Queen

Carrying a tray of afternoon tea through Buckingham Palace, the footman (Simon Farnaby) places it onto the table of Her Majesty and her guest Paddington Bear (Ben Whishaw) who wishes her a happy Jubilee. After drinking all of the tea, Paddington offers Her Majesty a marmalade sandwich from under his hat to which The Queen reveals her own hidden in her handbag. As the footman announces that the Jubilee concert is about to begin, Paddington thanks The Queen “for everything”. Outside, as the band begin drumming Queen’s We Will Rock You, Her Majesty and Paddington tap along on their teacups.

Sir Mo Farah revealing he was illegally trafficked to the UK

Sir Mo Farah faces a secret he has been hiding since he was a child and the facts around how it happened and why it happened. Whilst most people know him as Mo Farah, he reveals the shocking truth that his real name is in fact Hussein Abdi Kahin, and he was separated from his family and illegally trafficked into the UK under the name of another child. He openly shares his story whatever the risk, about his journey from Somaliland, and the subsequent years that led him to become the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history.

6. The Traitors

The final round table

Claudia Winkleman introduces the most shocking round table of the series, as the final five decide who to banish from the game. Knowing that the others were turning on him, Kieran leaves a ‘parting gift’ for The Faithful by dramatically voting for fellow Traitor, Wilfred. An anxious-looking Wilfred questions why he ever trusted Kieran and strategises about how to keep The Faithful on his side – who are all confused and increasingly suspicious. The remaining votes are revealed – as predicted, all targeting Kieran. He scoffs when Wilfred reveals he wrote his name down. Kieran reveals he knew Wilfred wouldn’t share the prize – just like he wouldn’t with previous Traitors Amanda or Alyssa.
