In recent years, Lorna has specialised in news and sports, working for most of the UK major broadcasters and independent production companies, as well as organisations in Europe and the Middle East. She has also technically managed the start-up of four new TV channels, including BBC Arabic. Lorna has an MA in Film and TV in Education as well as having been a teacher for 37 years in Primary, Secondary as well as in Higher Education, so has taught across all age ranges. She is module leader for the core modules of Tech skills and Advanced Tech skills, as well as leading on the optional module of Live OB and events where we use our 6 camera OB unit for live and as-live productions. As an industry professional, she is aware of how important it is for BNU students to have as much near industry experience as possible as that gives them “an edge” in the workplace. At BNU, we strive to provide them with these possibilities as well as imparting our industry knowledge and experience at the heart of all teaching and workshop sessions.
