BRITISH programmes dominate nominations for the prestigious

International Emmy awards for television.

Chris Evans's entertainment show Don't Forget Your Toothbrush,

holocaust documentary Anne Frank Remembered, and The Politician's Wife,

which starred Juliet Stevenson, are among those in the running for top

awards at the Gala in New York later this month.

The BBC picked up five nominations in the six programme categories,

Channel Four collected four, but the ITV companies notched up only two

-- both for programmes on Carlton.

Carlton's predecessor, Thames, is still involved in programme

production and picked up a co-nomination with the BBC.

The International Emmys are an offshoot of the awards for American

programmes made by its National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

It has already been announced that BBC director general John Birt will

gain recognition with a directorate Emmy, and Sir Peter Ustinov will be

the Gala host on November 20.

The BBC was also nominated for an International Emmy in the Children

and Young People's category for Little Lord Fauntleroy, an adaptation of

a Francis Hodgson-Burnett story about an American boy adopted by his

aristocratic English grandfather.

Other British nominations include Child of Chernobyl, (Zenith North

for Carlton UK), Bookmark -- Sex, Lies and Jerzy Kosinski (BBC), A Short

Film About Loving, (WDR, KOLN and Channel Four co-production), and Cold

Comfort Farm (BBC and Thames Television).
