The production marked the seventh year of the collaboration, facilitated by a dedicated team of BA (Hons) Digital Television Production, BSc (Hons) Digital Television Technology, BA (Hons) Editing and Post Production students. From production lead to graphics operator, technical lead and director, students fulfilled a wide range of roles.
