UNIVERSITY COURSE IN TV SPOTLIGHT

 

The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside has been playing a bit-part in the current BBC TV series of ‘Casualty’.

 

Eagle-eyed viewers have been able to spot a poster on the set of the hospital drama advertising a Health Studies course which the university offers at its Hull campus.

 

The man responsible for this canny piece of product placement is Professor Peter Birchenall of the university’s Department of Psychology and Health Studies.

 

“We sent a poster to the BBC a while ago and it’s been on the set of ‘Casualty’ for quite a long time,” he explained. “But it’s only recently that it’s been picked up by the camera and viewers have been able to see our logo clearly.”

 

Tune in to ‘Casualty’ on BBC1 at 8.05pm this Saturday evening to see if you can spot the university’s name in lights...
