Yes - will we make the video available afterwards via TM
Thanks for this discussion about work share, never thought this may be an option for our wider community.
Nothing wrong with Dad’s Army on loop! :-)
Fascinating figures and great to have the issues quantified
Agreed - excellent stats. So valuable to see it all laid out like this.
The recent Viva LA PD survey can provide more information for people about the possible exodus of freelancers on the horizon. www.vivalapd.tv
Very interesting stats, thank you xx

Hi All -we will make resources and recording available after this webinar
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?
just wanted to say thank you for hosting this and all the info
Hi there, is the Charity taking care of those working in commercials?
thanks for this - and thanks for mentioning neurodiversity as well
About no control over hours and any is been expectation to no matter what... included post too.
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
Thank you Alex Pumfrey
tanks to hear Rebecca, hear success production in lockdown!
as a new mum great to hear about positive job sharing and working from home
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Is there any way job sharing can help graduates join the Tv industry.
I’m a Film & TV graduate who wants to get a foot in the door. I’m freelance.
Thank you very much for asking my question Michelle and answering it so well Mark
Like a supply teacher..
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?
Hurray for talking about working for people with long-term disabilities.
Hurrah for “reasonable adjustment”!!!!
yes can see thanks
Thanks to all for organising and participating in a very thought-provoking and informative session. Nice not to feel as alone experiencing the problems thrown up by working in this industry !
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.
Thank you so much to you all, this has been really informative.
Thanks so much xx
Thank you all, great session, lots to think about
thank you 😊
Thank you. Very thought provoking.
thanks so much for a rallying session.
Thanks for a very informative chat. Would like to see a similar chat about returning to production after having children. thanks.
Thanks very much
Thank you x
