a sector of Prospect

BECTU provided its first live webcast from this page on Thursday 24 November 2011. The event, Your Job or Your Life? discussed the challenges of work/life balance, particularly from the point of view of TV and radio production, but the debate was also relevant to workers in other areas of the creative sector.

A packed audience at Move on Up RadioIndustry workers come together at a BECTU event.

Speaker panel

Leading lights in our Writers Producers and Directors' branch organised an expert panel which comprised Kate O’Connor, executive director & deputy CEO, Skillset Kate Kinninmont, chief executive, Women in Film and TV, Fi Glover, broadcaster and co-founder of Sound Women and Greg Chivers, series producer (and dad!).

We were also delighted to welcome Jackie Long, social affairs editor at Channel 4 News, to chair the discussion.  More details about the event here. Visit this page to view the footage.
