Joe Godwin meets the Queen!
I always enjoy visiting Channel 4 HQ. There is something very cool about walking up the steps past the big ‘4’ … and they welcome you with big smiles and nice things like mints at reception (as you can tell, I’m easily pleased).
Anyway, last week was the latest meeting for The Network and Ones to Watch Committee, hosted by Channel 4 where Committee Members Tabitha Jackson and Dom Bird work.
Lots of great ideas about sessions – including a brand new workshop which a BIG fact-ent show- but possibly the most exciting discussion around the evening was our Committee Chair’s Joe Godwin meeting with one of the most famous women on the planet… HRHThe Queen!
Yes, in his day job as Director of BBC Children’s Joe recently welcomed Her Majesty to CBBC’s HQ at MediacityUK so was great to see his pictures!
I don’t think you have to be a big Royal fan to appreciate how exciting the visit was – you can’t deny HRH is a true icon whatever your views on the monarchy. And, in this Diamond Jubilee year, we’re all celebrating her in one way or another.
Come to think of it, perhaps we should try and book her for the TV Festival this year… as an alternative Elizabeth for the alternative MacTaggart? Now there’s a thought!
Have a Great Easter!
