Game of Thrones has won the Radio Times Audience Award - the only prize chosen by viewers - at the 2013 BAFTAs.

Sky's bloodthirsty fantasy series has been a huge hit with viewers worldwide, including in Northern Ireland, where the show is largely made.

Fellow nominees were Homeland, the Olympic Opening Ceremony, Strictly Come Dancing, Call The Midwife and The Great British Bake Off.

Game of Thrones is filmed in various locations in Northern Ireland, including Titanic Studios in Belfast and the Linen Mill Film Studios in Banbridge.

It was also shortlisted in the International category, but was beaten by Girls.

Game of Thrones received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The award is the second of the evening for Northern Ireland's television and film industry.
