A true Fable

Video game legend Peter Molyneux is to be awarded a BAFTA Fellowship at next month's GAME British Academy Video Game Awards, joining the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick in the list of entertainment titans.

The gong, which will be handed to the Fable creator at the ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane, was given to Shigeru Miyamoto last year, confirming the unassuming Brit's position as one of the industry's most revered figures.

'I remember back in 1967 watching the first BAFTA awards on television with my family and seeing them so excited about those accolades,' said Molyneux. 'Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think it would be possible for me to accept one of the greatest honours the entertainment industry has to offer.

'My first thought on learning that I was awarded an Academy Fellowship was that to be in the company of some of the greatest talents the entertainment industry has ever seen is truly humbling and secondly that this is an award not just for myself, but for all the people I've ever worked with.'
