Busy Busy


I apologise for my lack of blogging…it has been a crazy few months. After our Christmas break, time seems to have absolutely flown by…with TV and radio portfolio’s to do, law and Public Administration exams, practicals and endless production days, there hasn’t been too much time for fun. Admittedly I have enjoyed this 4 day weekend so far though. I now only have 3 more exams and then that’s the end of an incredible year!

My TV portfolio was on the loss of the high street, following on from the Mary Portas review, myself and Karen decided to find out more.

TV special report


As a part of our course we work as a pair to produce a 3 minute television feature. Myself and Tom Lewis worked together as we researched the increase of microbreweries and the amount of pub closures in South East Wales. We found that more and more microbreweries had been popping up and opening their own pubs but that statisitcs by CAMRA (campaign for Real Ale) showed that since December last year more pubs have had to close down. We interviewed Gareth Williams (Tiny Rebel Brewery,) Nick Otley (Managing director of Otley Brewery, Pontypridd,) and Brian Lee ( a Cardiff author.)
