Blog post number 1.

This is where you can keep tabs on my preparations as I begin to plan my trip and my documentary. It’s all very exciting. I’m also aiming to start putting together a bit of background on my project. It’s a fascinating area and it’s getting its fair share of media attention. So keep checking back to see how I’m getting on.

Getting the website up and running has been a bit of a milestone. I’ll be making changes as the weeks go on, so slowly but surely things will come together.

I’m eager to get lots of really interesting projects on board for the radio documentary, so I’m currently sending lots of emails. More information soon, but it’s all beginning to sound pretty exciting.

Oh and I’m really pleased to say that I’ve been awarded funding for my documentary by One World Media Take a look at the link, the other students’ projects all sound brilliant, a very eclectic mix.

So, whilst I beaver away, watch this space.

In the meantime, my colleague Rebecca Novell is heading to India to make a documentary soon. Take a look at her website.
