ITV Wales is in the running for two awards at the Bafta Cymru awards on Sunday. The ceremony, to be held at the Wales Millennium Centre, will be celebrating the best of Welsh television in 2011.

A Wales This Week special on "Bullseye Killer" John Cooper is nominated in the Best Current Affairs category.

The programme had exclusive access to the police enquiry and forensic science which finally trapped Cooper after his 15-year reign of terror around Pembrokeshire which included four executions by shotgun. Far from keeping a low profile between crimes, Cooper even appeared on the TV game show "Bullseye".

Fishlock's Wales is nominated for the prestigious Gwyn Alf Williams award which honours programmes or series which have contributed most to the understanding and appreciation of the history in Wales.

In an edition called "Mother Courage", broadcaster Trevor Fishlock told the story a family from North Wales shipwrecked 100 years ago in midwinter seas around Cape Horn, and how they faced terror with amazing courage.

The full list of nominees is available via the British Academy Cymru Awards website.
