Thursday 26th November
On Thursday 26th November 2020, Deiniol Buxton, a producer for the BBC, joined JRCS Media Sixth Form students for a video conference. Deiniol spoke about how she got into the industry, different career paths, taking risks and what it was like to work for the BBC. She did her post-graduate degree at Westminster University, so Ashley in Year 13 had a few questions about that, as it is his first-choice university to study Digital Media. Deiniol got a placement at Radio 4 for You & Yours and then went on to be a researcher for Woman’s Hour and Midweek and then finally becoming a producer at the World Service working on their flagship personal stories programme Outlook. Deiniol has won Silver at the Sony Awards for a series made in America during the run up to Obama’s historic election, she spoke about travelling around America and listening to a variety of stories. She has travelled the world and won many awards.
Jack in Year 13 said “I found the talk really interesting, it seems like the media industry is hard to get into and you have to work hard, but it also seems very rewarding”. Sonia in year 12 said “I want to get into this industry and found everything Ms Buxton said really interesting. She has inspired me and given me some great advice on getting involved with as much as I can”.
Ms Harland and the Media students are very grateful for the time Deiniol Buxton took out of her day to speak to us and we are very grateful to Mrs Quail for arranging the talk.
