Wow - 90-odd% of freelancers not working as a result of Covid. AND, the vast majority not eligible for any gvmt help - these are SHOCKING stats

So true about no control over hours on set. You would be seen as a "problem" if you left set to go to your child's school etc.

Flexible working is absolutely what needs to happen, particularly after Covid. The industry very much needs to change. If shows can be made remotely, and made well, why can't the staff work flexibly?
Heather Cordiner
01:00:55
just wanted to say thank you for hosting this and all the info

TV used to be about nurturing when I was staff - training and being put on shows to have difference experience. Now it is you come in, hit the ground running as a freelancer and then disappear at the end of the programme. No nurturing. You feel like a commodity that is thrown away. This is all down to the freelance culture. What about staff jobs?

I’m looking at whether we can shift some of our full-time staff who are suffering with Covid mental health issues, into part-time work / job sharing as a way to ease the load

How refreshing to hear Mark talking about his experience as an employer making job sharing work. I've had long tail Covid for 13 weeks, trying to recover and hoping that at some point an employer will be willing to give me a chance to job share as a Producer in Factual TV

Job Sharing should be made compulsory in tv recruitment

tanks to hear Rebecca, hear success production in lockdown!
Heather Cordiner
01:17:28
as a new mum great to hear about positive job sharing and working from home
Ruth Rackham
01:18:23
will be interesting to see who is deemed as having to work in proximity. historically production are always rooted to an office not least because the depts they work with to launch a shoot eg finance stay office based..

Hi - I don’t know if this is an appropriate question to ask…….I have been trying to gather interest in a children’s story I’ve been involved with (I co-wrote the music) I’ve now created an animation during the lockdown to advertise this project (I’ve never done animation before!) Here is the link if anyone wants to see my efforts: https://we.tl/t-utdEhLQMuY I would be very grateful for any help from anyone in the tv industry (children’s TV in particular) thanks Andy (andy.allpass57@gmail.com)

Is there any way job sharing can help graduates join the Tv industry.
John McVey

I’m a Film & TV graduate who wants to get a foot in the door. I’m freelance.

Hi, I have found it incredibly helpful to hear what's going on this side of the curtain. Normally a script supervisor I've been wondering whether we can expect to return to work before 2021 -- although it's slightly unrelated to this subject, what's your thoughts on this?
Karen Hoy
01:44:58
Hurray for talking about working for people with long-term disabilities.
Karen Hoy

Thank you ALL panelists for this refreshing hour and a half :)

I feel the TV industry unfortunately won't adapt to flexible working even though it should. It's ruthless and it eats you up and spits you out.
Gideon Gold
01:48:01
so true
