A group of students from the University of Lincoln in Hull recently returned from a cultural visit to New York aimed at enhancing their knowledge of foreign broadcasting standards.

Stuart Porteous and John Hamlin, learning advisor and senior lecturer in Media Technology at the university, took a collection of students from both the Hull School of Media Technologies and the Hull School of Art and Design on the trip to experience television broadcasting in the Big Apple.

Among their visits was a behind-the-scenes tour of the NBC studios in the famous Rockefeller Centre, where they got to see the workings of television studios.

Their knowledge of industry standard media was enhanced even further after some of the group managed to participate as an audience in a recorded broadcast of the American music review programme ‘Daily Download’, filmed at the Penn Plaza for Channel 56.

The trip also allowed the group to visit the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art, Ground Zero, Central Park and Times Square.

“The trip was a great experience for the students and proved both entertaining and educational,” said John.


“It was extremely worthwhile and worked to demonstrate how the television industry is moving into new areas of media.”
