RTS Futures Summer Party

This year RTS Futures are joining forces with the Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival Talent Schemes to host a celebration and party for you with some of the biggest names in the television industry.  

This is a party like no other – an opportunity you could only dream of – a chance to meet the people behind some of the most talked about shows on British television, as we open the evening with a special Q&A session

Aimed at 16-24 year olds who are interested in working in the broadcasting industry, at places like the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky, the fair will feature people who have experience working on some of the country’s biggest shows including Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor and The Great British Bake Off.  Massive youth brands such as Radio 1 and BBC Three will be in attendance; plus the BBC’s training arm - the Academy and locally made BBC One daytime drama Doctors and BBC WM. More names are being added to the line up every day.

RTS Futures Christmas Party

December sees the return of the infamous RTS Futures Christmas Party, and this year we’ve teamed up with Broadcast magazine to celebrate this year’s BAME Hotshots.

This year Broadcast decided to focus on BAME Hotshots to shine a light on the diversity with the industry.  The response was overwhelming.

Our friend in the capital

As I find my seat among the 150 or more people who have come to Steve Dann’s latest Meetup, I know that the evening will be stimulating and, possibly, provocative. Dann, CEO of Amplified Robot, runs regular monthly Meetups, and this one, “AR and VR in medical education”, is being held in a lecture theatre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.

London is an exciting place to be, as we live and work through the digital revolution in content creation and distribution.
