Head of Media and Creative Arts wins Royal Television Society award

Released: 09.02.12

Adrian Emerson and his company Coleridge Productions have won a Royal Television Society award for 'Bowl Up and Shine' in the non-broadcast public sector category. This is the sixth time in 20 years Coleridge have won a Royal Television Society award.

Adrian commented: “We are naturally delighted - not least because the programme was made on a relatively restricted budget for an older demographic which is a real challenge. Since UCP Marjon first started providing media programmes we have developed our portfolio with practicing media professionals and in my case Coleridge Productions has provided me with an outlet for my creative energies alongside my broad academic interests.

It's particularly satisfying this time to be working on a project that links the different departments in our faculty and the theme of Bowls and Health is usefully associated with the academic study carried out by Lance Doggart and Linsey Wilson from the department of Sport and Health Sciences about the physiological benefits associated with playing Bowls.”

The DVD is being extensively used across the country in an effort to substantially raise participation in the sport of Bowls.
