Congratulations on BAFTA Fellowship Award Michael by Loretto on 3 May 2013 1:20pm
 
I think it shows what a team player he is when he says, "A BAFTA Fellowship is a very high honour for anyone working in television. Iím well aware that any success Iíve had is down to team-work. Iíve been blessed throughout my career with the inspiration and support of others. The Fellowship is for all of us.Ē

Congratulations! Well deserved. And just a week after 70th birthday too!!!!

I've just watched most of the BAFTA awards ceremony and really enjoyed the last 15 minutes where Mr Palin was presented with his Fellowship award. A potted history of clips from his career in entertainment was exceptional in its coverage and Terry Jones introduction to the award was excellent. Michael received the award very courteously with an acceptance speech that was gracious and very well spoken. Congratulations again Michael!

Just watched it here, on YouTube. The BAFTA site only shows the speech, not the clips from his career. Terry Jones sounded like he was going to breakdown and cry!

I liked that he mentioned his wife suggested long journeys that he should go on and that his children had an uncanny ability to remember only the embarrassing things he did, which helped keep his feet on the ground.

Well done Michael. Don't stop traveling or writing. Congratulations.

Here, here, Loretto! When Terry said 'who has been my friend for 50 years, I just about cried.

It was a lovely speech, and am proud of Michael receiving such an award. Congratulations!
