TV PhD 2023

Now in it’s sixth year, TV PhD is a joint venture between the TV Foundation and the AHRC. It gives 15 early career researchers an intensive introduction to TV to equip them with the tools to work in or with the TV industry once they have completed their PhDs.

TV PhD’s alumni have gone on to work on TV programmes including Falklands War – The Untold Story, Air Warriors and Who Do You Think You Are.

This year’s cohort will receive masterclasses from diverse industry figures, including an in depth look at developing ideas for television from Lion Television (Horrible Histories, Mary Beard’s Forbidden Art, Secrets of the Saqqara Tomb).

Meet this year’s cohort below.
