One episode on “constructed reality” programmes was particularly interesting. The bit where Tony Wood, who created The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE to its fans) shares his production approach with his enthralled peers reveals how groundbreaking this show has been.
TV production is something that really interests me. Having brushed up against it a few times in recent years, I thought I could learn a little more by listening to the BBC College of Production podcasts.
They have turned out to be a real find, and I highly recommend them to anyone involved in any kind of media work. Even if you don’t work with TV, hearing about other people’s creative processes are really useful.
