Having Tea and Talking About TV

Following an amazing selection of sandwiches, children in the Senior School were treated to a large slice of caramel chocolate brownie before sitting down to listen to guest speaker, television producer, Louisa Pond-Jones recently.   

Ms. Pond-Jones, who was introduced to the children by Year 8 pupil Johane, spoke passionately about how she became qualified to start her career in television and her first experiences as a runner, to how she progressed and became a producer on shows such as I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Big Brother and Shipwrecked, to name but a few.  The presentation considered the many fun aspects of the work, such as live broadcasting, planning shows and the tough challenges faced when under pressure, to the more down-to-earth trials of working in television and the perks of meeting celebrities!  Eshaan then closed the presentation and thanked Ms. Pond-Jones for visiting Crosfields. 

Tea and Talk 

Some of the children commented afterwards about how much they enjoyed the talk.  "Louisa didn't talk down to us, and it was a brilliant and informal introduction to working in television" said Priyanka, and Luc said, "I could not believe all the various roles involved in TV producing!"
