Trips to Bristol City FC and England Hockey air on ITV and Channel 5
26 September 2023
Over the last four days, reports I filmed at Bristol City and England Hockey have aired across ITV and Channel 5.
Appearing on both ITV's English Football League Highlights programme and Channel 5's main news bulletin, my reports shone light on environmental and clothing issues, giving voice to unsung heroes in our communities.
On ITV, I spoke to Peter Smith, Head of Change and Sustainability at Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City, following news the Championship side were the first club to earn GreenCode Accreditation since the launch of the EFL Green Clubs scheme.
For Channel 5 News, I visited Bisham Abbey Sports Centre to meet England Hockey player Tess Howard, campaigning to improve standards of clothing for women and girls, following her research that 70% of women had seen girls drop out of sport due to kit or body image concerns.
It's always a thrill to get out and about and film for broadcast. I feel very lucky indeed to now have had 13 reports air across ITV, Channel 5 and Sky in the past year and if you've told 13-year-old Nick this would happen, he would be ecstatic. I genuinely feel blessed to be doing my dream job.
