I need 8 volunteers to help film/social media during the evening of the Bob Friend Memorial Lecture on March 3rd. This is open to undergrands of all shapes and sizes as well as MAs. It's an incredible opportunity to learn about multiple camera event coverage as well as social media live reporting. (It also gets you closer to our invited guest speaker, and MAJOR brownie points for being helpful). It would require a couple of hours of training plus showing up early on the day and staying a bit later.
Following the success of last year's Xmas hit "Fairytale of Kent" (also produced by a group of our students), the team at BBC Radio Kent didn't think twice about approaching the Centre for a quality Xmas production.
Have a listen to our first year undergrad's newsday!! Putting together 30 mins of live radio is no easy task, and even more so when you've only been studying how to do it for less than 6 months.
Nevertheless, our almost 40 strong class took on the mammoth task brilliantly and delivered two impressive shows full of national, local and international stories. If this is how they start, we cannot wait to see what they'll be up to in a couple of years time.
