The accent has very much been on youth in the RTS's busy autumn events calendar, thanks to two marvellous RTS Futures events and the first of our standalone masterclass days – held in the highly appropriate setting of the BFI.
At the first RTS Futures evening, we heard how being able to self-shoot is fast becoming an essential skill for researchers or assistant producers in many genres.
At the other Futures evening, "How to survive as a freelancer", attendees received some essential tips on thriving in a flexible job market.
The good news is that freelance pay is going up. A massive thanks to all those who made these two occasions the successes they were.
Three experienced TV practitioners shared their wisdom at the RTS Student Programme Masterclasses. I'm very grateful to Saurabh Kakkar, Andrew Mackenzie and Gwyneth Hughes for all finding the time to be with the students at the BFI.
In this edition of Television, we also explore TV's looming technical skills crisis and the opportunities for young engineers and craft workers.
Our cover story focuses on young people who have struck gold in online video: YouTube is a new route to stardom – but how is this impacting on traditional television?
