Mmm, there was very little focus on the actual award winners themselves or samples of their work.
Plenty of attention given to the "luvvies" who announced them though. So, I'm almost in agreement with Akenaton here.
Of course, the programme was edited for TV and they decided to to mainly feature the live performances but these were not, mainly, the winning acts.
The Scots Trad Awards is arguably more balanced on TV even although BBC Alba edit and produce it to appear like a Gaelic Awards programme even although it's not.
