Notts TV and Confetti students to create a new tv show

Wednesday October 19, 2022

Our BSc (Hons) TV Production Technology students will be creating an hour long show for the local TV channel, based just around the corner from Confetti.

As part of our ongoing commitment to create work-like opportunities on the BSc (Hons) TV Production Technology course, we are working together with Notts TV, who have set our first years a brief to create the hour-long Nottingham Culture Magazine show, which is tied to 40 credits of their degree.

Our students recently met Notts TV Channel Manager, Chris Breese, who toured them around their facilities and studio, before bringing them back to their newsroom to deliver the brief. Notts TV staff will remain a big presence within this project, being involved throughout the different stages of assessment, providing both creative and technical feedback to ensure the students are working to current industry expectations.

Confetti second years have also recently started work-based placements at Notts TV, supporting on several shows and productions, including Team Talk. Team Talk features presenter Mark Shardlow – of BBC East Midlands Today fame – joined by football pundits to discuss all things Nottingham Forest, Notts County and Mansfield Town football clubs, with exclusive insight and access to the managers and players. This structured term one programme enables students to be involved in a variety of roles within the studio and gallery while working on Notts TV productions.

These opportunities allow students not only to gain valuable real world experience, but also ensures they all gain IMDB credits while studying, boosting their skills and employability as a graduate.
