TV Futures - Running around for clients
Joseph Long My second year at the University of Portsmouth seemingly began in a familiar fashion to the previous year. We sat in a large lecture theatre and listened intently to our course leader, who gave an outline as to what students on the BSc Television and Broadcasting course should be expect experience-wise from the up-and-coming year....

Michael Parsons Im often asked, what do you do when the students arent around?, and the simple answer is, as it would be from any university technical support member of staff, I get involved in passion projects and these help me to stay up-to-date with the kit and keep my hand-in with video filmmaking.

Can university really set you up?
Jess Sutton When deciding what career you want to go into and which University to go to, there are so many questions that go through your head. I know when I first started considering University, my grades just weren't good enough. I knew which undergraduate course I wanted to do, but I still had a way to go.

Mr MXF thinks the future is bright
Bruce Devlin I have had the good fortune to spend some time with students at Southampton Solent, The University of Surrey, Ravensbourne and Godalming College in the last few weeks.

TV Futures
Lloyd Ashton University radio is a great starting platform- hearing something being broadcast that started out as a few ideas in a notebook is quite incredible. My name is Lloyd Ashton and I'm currently a third year Television and Broadcasting student at the University of Portsmouth. Over the past three years, I have been introduced to many modes of broadcasting, yet it's radio that has left an everlasting impression.

Media acquisition and Archive Workflow
Ryan Jenkins Hello, I am Ryan Jenkins, a third year student at the University of Portsmouth and as part of my final year on the BSc Television and Broadcasting course, I am the Post Production manager for all television teams making live programmes, something we specialise in. My role has thus far seen me design a workflow that involves archiving footage from our made VTs, and then storing them for future use for cutaways and other archival reasons. Here is a little of something that I have learnt in my attempt to create a fully operable archive system - I hope it will improve how we work.

Streaming graduation
Charlie Watts Graduation is a big deal for students, families and for the degree awarding institutions, and so it has been this way in Portsmouth since 1995. Now twenty years later it should come as no surprise that the University of Portsmouth has elevated the Graduation Ceremony Broadcasting Operation into something so organised that it runs like a refined and well oiled Swiss watch.

Every election counts
Charlie Watts Let me set the scene. In September 2014 we were contacted by ITV Meridian News and asked if we would be interested in helping film declarations from the Hampshire and Sussex constituencies. It was just before the start of the new academic year, and we figured, sure, that's months away, why not! And so begun the slow build up to what we believe was a U.K first, with Meridian arranging to work with HE institutions in the South of the country to gather a wider and more comprehensive recording of election counts.

Dylan Ellcome The end of my third year of BSc Television and Broadcasting at the University of Portsmouth is drawing closer, meaning the end of my time at University. Several deadlines have come and gone, and my CCI management of Script Editing has slowed down. But I still can't comprehend this ending, as there is still much to do with several big deadlines left including my Documentary. But looming above it all is as always has been my Final year project.

Raechelle Jackson The penultimate term studying Television and Broadcasting is a time to reflect upon my journey as a CCI TV manager thus far and look to the future. And as graduation starts to inch ever closer, I am now pondering the opportunities that lie ahead of me. When I think back to what I knew as I walked through the doors of the University, I can feel quite proud of how far I've come. I am much more aware of my strengths and what it takes to produce good broadcast quality television. I can't get too ahead of myself just yet however, as I still have plenty to do in my final year before I say goodbye to my student life and begin my journey exploring graduate jobs and taking that scary, exciting step into the world of employment.

The business of University: Or lack thereof
Ashley Golder University. Finally a time of critical thinking, training for your future career and coming out with enough knowledge to confidently acquire a job... or rather that is the plan. But what if that doesn't happen? When the £9,000 a year tuition fee, plus the expense of living costs rear their ugly heads and the invoice is sent in the post asking for loan repayment, do you think: was it really worth the money?

Callum O Leary Let's be honest here, most students today are very engaged with social media, why wouldn't they be? In the past few years, social media has developed hugely; not just as something you use as a pastime on your desktop or laptop, but a multi-million pound business. It's where the people are. And where the people are is where the advertisers follow. Television has embraced social media as an area where users can interact, take part in competitions and so much more- and almost anything else goes.

Following the Ravensbourne 3: Ruth Matos manages her time

As I am in the third year of my course I had to give priority to my university projects. Nevertheless I had a hectic schedule and had to be good at managing my time.

Alex Fine A lot of young people studying film production such as myself are always looking to set up as a film production company. We do little jobs where we make studio diaries for young (or old on the rare occasion) musicians; low budget music videos, [very] short films about nothing in particular, or corporate videos with clich© dolly- moves and scratchy sound.
