Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
For third year students:
On offer: BBC work placements organised through the BJTC.
You need to apply through the website below:
Follow the website’s instructions carefully. Most placements are in BBC local radio across the UK. A few are in television and radio news in London.
You might share more actual work with a news team in a local radio station than if you end up with national TV or radio.
You won’t be any more likely to get exactly the placement you desire if you submit your application early. The ideal time to get your submission in is 12 weeks before you wish to start a placement.
If you don’t get a BJTC placement at the BBC, if you do a strong enough application you may well get one in commercial radio, also through the BJTC. I will talk to the BJTC on your behalf if you need me to.
