The BBC Academy is currently advertising its BAME Training Day and is looking for black, Asian and minority ethnicity professors, lecturers, research fellows and experts to apply.
The free media training/introduction to the world of broadcasting day is being held in Glasgow on Thursday, 12 March to encourage more BAME
experts in Scotland to put themselves forward as experts for the media - and help increase the number of BAME experts on TV.
The BAME Talent Days offer a range of practical media experiences including sessions on camera and in a radio studio as well as master
classes and the opportunity to meet and network with experienced programme makers and industry leaders. Experts who are interested in
being considered for TV & Radio opportunities have the chance to make important contacts and raise their profile further - and experts who
have never thought about putting themselves forward for media opportunities can find out how the TV industry works in a friendly and
informal way. Watch the video of the BAME day in London here:
