First year/MA/YIJ TV assessment deadline EXTENDED

First year/MA/YIJ TV assessment deadline EXTENDED

To mitigate the impact of me having been on strike please now submit your TV assessment on the Wednesday of the week we come back after Christmas, ie 15 January. The new deadline is 5pm that day. Use the extra time well though by emailing me cues/low res timelines/scripts and I pass on helpful feedback. My aim is to help everyone, so whatever you are struggling with, whether it is access, interviewees dropping out or how to write and structure your script, please knock on my door or email.

I want to help.

When your NCTJ Radio or TV coursework is ready, please send me the radio coursework and Laura the equivalent TV coursework.

The deadline is 10 May, so you have the whole of the Easter break to do this. There's an entry to this effect on the CFJ site's diary for that day.

It's not onerous. You'll know the criteria for the coursework is EXACTLY THE SAME as that of the work you've submitted in Year 2 TV and radio or on the MA course.

BBC Radio Kent is looking for a Kent grammar educated student

BBC Radio Kent is looking for a Kent grammar educated student who passed the 11+, for a BBC project called Crossing divides.
You need to be a good talker and have some things to say.
The format is to sit down and recording and film two students who don’t know each other to talk about the issue of Grammar school education v Comprehensive education. The format would be similar to the R4s The Listening Project i.e. it’s very conversational with little interjection from a BBC journalist.
