Exposure is a multiplatform broadcast project produced by students studying RADIO and TV at the University of South Wales. Exposure began in 2011 – radio students chose the name and it stuck! Exposure TV began in 2013, although it had run in a pre-recorded capacity the year before.
Exposure aims to equip students with as near to a professional working environment as possible. Radio students produce live and pre-recorded programmes, ranging from Stories Behind the Songs, (our version of BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs), to topical discussion programmes which focus on issues facing students and new graduates as well as those associated with them.
In 2015, Holly and the team made a video about Exposure Radio.
What people in the media industry have said about Exposure:
“Exposure is a brilliant initiative by USW, giving budding media professionals an exciting opportunity to develop and showcase their talents. From what I’ve seen, the future of the industry is in very good hands.” Huw Rossiter, ITV.
An array of exciting guests have visited Exposure since it began, including: Rhodri Talfan Davies (Director of BBC Wales), Huw Rossiter (ITV Public Affairs Manager), Lorna Dunkley (Sky News Presenter) and David S. Goyer (Writer of Dark Knight trilogy).
“I loved chatting with the students on Exposure. They were enthusiastic and professional, qualities that mean they deliver a great product.” – Lorna Dunkley, Sky News.
Exposure is also keen to work with local charities to help raise awareness. Previously we worked with Tenovus – one of the biggest cancer charities in Wales; Age Cymru, a charity which aims to protect vulnerable older people in Wales and the Royal National Institute for the Blind.
“We were very impressed with the enthusiasm and professionalism of the Exposure students who worked with us this year (2015) and there were definitely opportunities for both parts of the collaboration to benefit from the relationship.” Iwan Rhys Roberts, Age Cymru
Exposure is delighted to have worked alongside some key industry figures and their positive feedback is always nice to garner!
Our TV students make magazine shows which include varied content, from big name guests such as former Polytechnic of Wales graduate, now Sky News presenter, Lorna Dunkley, to features about living on a budget.
One of the highlights of Exposure 2013, for example, was an interview with the legendary screen writer and producer of blockbusters such as Batman Begins and Man of Steel, David S Goyer:
Over the last few years our students have raised awareness of the work of various local charities. We have especially close links with Tenovus, Wales’ biggest cancer charity and Age Cymru, the national charity for older people in Wales. We’ve also collected items for Adref a homeless charity based in Pontypridd, south Wales and Cardiff Foodbank
