Students go behind the scenes at Countdown
As part of their studies Year 12 Creative Media students at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form College attended the filming of the hit Channel 4 production Countdown at Media City UK in Salford.
The students went behind the scenes at the filming of the semi-finals, where they had the chance to see what goes on during the making of the show. The experience gave them an inside view on the many elements of TV production including camera operation, lights, and scene selection. Staff at Media City took time to talk to the students about life in the media industry and the visit provided a valuable insight that could lead to a career in TV in the future.
