Rosie Turner, Class of 2015 | BBC CBeebies Content Producer

RosieTurner-WebsiteHello! I’m Rosie and I graduated in 2015 with a BA (Hons) in Media Production. I work for BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC as a Content Producer for CBeebies. My role involves managing the social media for pre school shows Hey Duggee, Go Jetters and Sarah & Duck. As an online producer my role could be anything from coming up with new ideas for videos to promote magazines and toys to collaborating with the Children’s department in Manchester, attending brand partner meetings and even researching Christmas cakes designs!

I’m really excited to have joined the BBC after working for 18 months at a social media agency in East London on projects for Red Bull, MTV and CBBC. This role has allowed me to use the skills I’ve already gained in Children’s television to create exciting and inspirational content for families, parents/guardians and teachers! In my last year of university I wrote my dissertation on ‘Bringing The Children Out To Play’ a study on the relationship between Children’s online/broadcast media and the outdoors. I love spending time in nature and in my spare time I’ve been working on my own project called ‘The Urban Backpacker.’ Continue reading

The DVD launch was advertised via Doctor Who’s official Facebook page, which gave you the chance to enter a competition to win a pair of tickets to attend the DVD launch.  I entered the competition not really thinking much more about it due to the fact that I don’t usually win competitions. However on Wednesday 5th November 2014, I checked the emails on my phone after a long day, discovering to my delight that I had won a pair of tickets to the Doctor Who Series 8 DVD Launch. But to my surprise, BBC Worldwide who sent the email asked me and anyone else who won tickets to keep the event’s location a secret. Continue reading
