David Knight - 12th Nov 2012

It was the night of the year for British music videos, and the fifth annual UK Music Video Awards last Thursday night (November 8th) was indeed the biggest MVA show yet - from a pre-show performance by dance troupe Peridot, to host Adam Buxton's sidesplitting celebrity messages, to joyous and emotional scenes as winners accepted their awards, to entertaining (and often quite violent) taped messages from absent winners...
