Back on the 31st of March, I handed in my dissertation, something I’d spent hours and hours of time working on and crafting to be the best it possibly could, and this week I got the mark back. I passed with a first! I was so happy to know that it had all been worth it.
Today Jono Holmes came to the university to give a talk regarding his experiences as the host of Capital FM’s south coast breakfast show. Jono has been working in the industry since he graduated from University, coming from quite a similar position to us.
Aside from “TVBRO” we also have a unit featured around making a documentary. I have been looking forward to this unit all year as a lot of the content we produce is centered around television studios and fairly constrictive formats, whereas this unit allowed for a bit more creative freedom.

Our final TVBRO production aired live today on Express FM community radio station, and was all about the Unsung heroes of Portsmouth. This was our first broadcast on radio throughout the entire degree, and it was a nice change from the CCI TV studio that we’d been working out of for the rest of this unit.

Today was the day our first TVBRO show of the year came to life. If you’re still asking yourself, “what on Earth is this TVBRO thing?!” check out the homepage for more info.
