Unfortunately, unlike last time, due to other commitments during the day, I could only attend two sessions:
- Editing with FCP – A very useful introduction to the basics of using this popular non-linear editing system provided by DV Talent.
- Design Futures and Innovation – This session looked at some of the methods used at the Prospect and Innovation Design Research Studio (Pi Studio) based in the Design Department at Goldsmiths College, University of London. The session included a practical timeline exercise looking at the past and possible future of the BBC – I’ll write further on this interesting technique in a future post.
Many thanks to the organisers and partners involved in arranging another great TV Fast Train.

The audience must have consisted of 90% BBC and ex-BBC staff, along with many who have associations with the BBC.
The programme, produced and directed by Richard Marston, who worked on Blue Peter from 1998 to 2007, is a very enjoyable documentary covering the history of BBC Television Centre, told through the reminisces of those who have worked in the building over the years.
I worked at the Centre on the staff from 1988 to 2007, and quite a number of the stories recounted in the programme I have not come across before.
The preview of the programme was introduced by the BFI’s Dick Fiddy and Richard Marston (pictured together above) along with Sarah Greene, who said “anyone who has worked there [Television Centre] can’t have failed to be affected”.
I agree with Sarah.
