Emma Penny has mixed sound for ITN, working on huge outside broadcasts such as the VE Day Celebrations. Louise Willcox has supervised sound recording on Springwatch and Question Time. They came together to deliver a session on sound recording at our 2016 Student Craft Skills Masterclasses.
Last week, I was standing in a fly-fishing shop in a small town in Montana telling the owner I worked for the BBC Natural History Unit. "Oh, so you're from Bristol," was his reply.
OK, he was a wildlife fan and did then ask if David Attenborough was my neighbour, but it does illustrate that Bristol and the NHU's reputation go far and wide.
I joined in my late twenties to work on the Attenborough blockbuster The Trials of Life. I thought I'd stay for the three years it took to make the series and then move on.
