Great Yarmouth students receive help for Broads film

Students from the Great Yarmouth area are being given an opportunity to work alongside a former TV presenter to produce films centred on the Broads.

Fifteen young people aged between 15 and 20 will produce five documentary programmes which will be screened at a mini film festival during 2012.

The concept was devised by a Norfolk school’s media department head Ashir Abbas and former TV broadcaster Ian Masters.

The students will be chosen during the summer and training will start at Lynn Grove High School, Gorleston, in September.
