Sir Peter Bazalgette, Chairman of ITV

Christ the King Aquinas was delighted to recently host a talk by Sir Peter Bazalgette who is the current Chairman of ITV and is in the process of leading an independent review into the UK’s creative industries as part of the Government’s new Industrial Strategy.


Peter spoke to over 80 Media students from across our 3 sites, highlighting the enormous expansion and opportunities that are arising in the entertainment industry for students interested in pursuing a career in the Arts.

Students were fascinated to hear of his time as the former President of the Royal Television Society and as Chief Creative Officer of Endemol where he personally devised several internationally successful TV shows such as Ready Steady Cook and Ground Force.

Sir Peter spent a great deal of time with students individually after his talk and we are very grateful for him taking time out of his busy schedule to inspire our students.
