Tell us about your BBC experiences

“I'll never forget walking into BBC Television Centre for the first time - the home of television and so many iconic shows. Plus, being the proud owner of a BBC pass! 

“Working for the BBC comes with a prestige that other organisations could only wish for, it certainly helps when making programmes that require access to specific locations or experts.”

How did your BU experience prepare you for your future career? 

“My six-week summer placement was spent in the camera, sound and lighting departments at The London Studios, which at the time had a relationship with BU. The six weeks were full of hands-on experience of working in a real life TV studio.”
