Open Eye: Opening Doors To New Careers Summer Bites
Thursday 03 September 1998
The programmes contain interviews with Quentin Tarantino, Alexander McQueen, Linford Christie, Richard E Grant and many other leading figures.
"We talk to everyone for inside info, tips and advice, from pattern cutters to fashion designers; runners to film directors," says Jules Pownall, Summer Bites producer. "There are many different routes to a career - but when you're young and on the outside, it's hard to know where to start. We hope Summer Bites will open doors and make these jobs more accessible."
Each career is explored in two programmes designed to be video-recorded. The first provides a background to the industry, while the second shows how to get a foot in the door.
A special menu highlights different programme sections for quick reference. Tips from the top, information on the best courses, websites, telephone hotlines and magazines help to provide a complete picture.
Summer Bites is broadcast on BBC Learning Zone from 3.00 to 5.00am. Remember to set your videos the night before!
