In 2011 the Tuskar Trust gave me the opportunity to gain two weeks work experience with Blink TV, an independent production company based in London.

Over the course of these two weeks I learnt a lot about the process of television production. As well as educational, it really was fun. The first week and a half consisted of assisting the production team in their offices in Soho, but by the end of the second week I was helping the crew backstage at the festival. I now work as a documentary researcher for the BBC and I believe my experience with Blink TV was a valuable initial step into the world of television.
