David Ward, head of Creative Arts and Media, said: “This event provides the media national diploma students with real live TV production experience using industry-standard cameras, mixers and monitors for the evening, with each student assigned their own professional role.

“It also gives the students a chance to design and create the set, to schedule every detail, arrange the bands, gain first hand experience of the enormous amount of behind-the-scenes planning that goes into such a production and to develop their TV production technical skills.
