As an educational charity, part of the RTS focus is on providing information for young entrants into the television and media industry. RTS Behind the Scenes is our newest series exploring the production process of some of Britain’s most popular programmes. From current affairs to comedy, panel shows and soaps, this series will offer a rare glimpse backstage of each production, highlighting all the different roles and giving a sense of what they entail.
Fixed rig is an increasingly popular way of story telling in television and, as Channel 4's Commissioning Editor David Brindley points out, an excellent way of breaking into factual and documentary programming. In this video David offers his best tips on getting a job with the huge production teams, and how to excel once your on board.
The Spanish Armada, much like the Boudica's uprising against the Romans, is a pillar of British history often referred to, but rarely fully understood.
Now a new three-part docudrama, starting this Sunday on BBC Two, aims to explain just what the armada was all about, from the international tensions that led to the conflict, to the efficacy of the weapons used.
Using CGI, dramatic reconstructions and recently discovered documents, Armada: 12 Days to Save England will focus on this short but decisive period of Tudor history.
Ladies and gentlemen, thank you.

The Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste picked up the RTS Television Journalism Judges' Award tonight on behalf of himself and two of his colleagues still on bail in Egypt.
Greste was honoured alongside his two Al Jazeera colleagues, Baher Mohamed and Mohamed Fahmy, who watched a live broadcast of the London ceremony from Cairo.
The three were arrested in December 2013 and later jailed on charges of terrorism and spreading false news. Greste was released from the Egyptian Jail on 1 February, after 400 days in prison.
