What a fantastic thread. It was that same enthusiasm for TV that led me to join all those years ago at 16, now approaching my mid 30s I'm lucky enough to be a cameraman in a job I adore filming something different every day. I still post here and follow the goings on, I'll never lose that love fo TV pres.
We often get younger members posting here and some of the older guard can be less than welcoming, but it sounds like you will go far.
I’ve messaged Duncan in the past and also found him to be a lovely chap, defiantly someone I’d have a pizza with! I wish you the very best and agree with much of the advice posted here already.
