Netflix's 'Breaking Bad' has become the first show to win a BAFTA despite never having been on TV.

The show won the International award at last night's ceremony in London.

Its stablemate 'House of Cards' was also nominated despite never having been broadcast on TV.

Both shows are only available through streaming service Netflix.

Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the series, collected the award. He said: "This is such an honour to be nominated in this category. I feel so blessed to be in your company, my god. The fact that I'm standing on this stage is so crazy to me.

"'Breaking Bad' was such an incredible journey, I just want to thank Vince Gilligan, who created it. Man, you're brilliant. Thank you to the rest of the cast, thank you family, thank you all!"

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's 'Today' programme, he admitted to enjoying 'Derek' and 'The Wonder Years' on catch-up.

Sky's 'A League of Their Own' won in the Comedy and Comedy Entertainment Programme category, while Richard Ayoade won Male Performance in a Comedy Programme. Other winners include 'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway', 'Coronation Street', 'David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Alive 3D', 'Gogglebox', and 'Him & Her'.

Julie Walters won a Fellowship, while Cilla Black won the Special Award for 2014.

You can see the full list of winners on the BAFTA website.
