Broadcast Hotshots shine at RTS Futures event

RTS Futures and Broadcast Magazine BAME Hotshots Christmas Party at the Hospital Club

RTS Futures turned the spotlight on TV’s diversity – or lack of it – at its final event of the year where a panel of young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) talent revealed their struggles and triumphs in the industry.
The panel was drawn from Broadcast’s 26 BAME Hot Shots of 2015, which the magazine announced in August.

The organisation, which sets out to “change the face of media” has made a major impact on the creative industries in the UK since its launch in 2012.

CEO for Creative Access, Josie Dobrin explained the need for the programme, saying “The economic rationale for Creative Access is clear: our sector needs to diversify in order to continue to grow and succeed in serving new markets and new audiences.”

Creative Access has placed 700 young BAME candidates in six-month or year-long internships in over 260 different companies including BBC, ITV and Twitter.
