  • Without Brexit there is ease of travel for students who live in other countries to travel around and study wherever they like.
  • Currently there are over 125,000 EU students studying and living in the UK.
  • Also, the connection with the EU allows expensive projects to go ahead and allows further research in certain areas.

In this task, I was in control of the cameras ensuring with got the correct angles and working hard to get an interview with a young person. However, we were unable to find a young person around Parliament. Although, we came across a woman ‘Susan Nicolson’, who shared her many and varied opinions on Brexit.

Aim: Create an audio package featuring shop owner Laura Hipkiss and what has inspired her to open a BYO shop, talk to an expert on whether Laura’s efforts are worth and ask some customers for their opinion.

Location: Nunhead/ London South Bank University

Questions: What inspired you to open up this shop?

Where do you see yourself in five years?

What do you think of Laura’s efforts?

Do you enjoy shopping in here and why?

  • Pollution is widely talked about subject yet not much is being done about this. Shops like Laura’s are very hard to find.
  • The first types of shops like this to have opened were in France and Germany.
  • The more and more we continue to misuse the environment the more is will increase pollution. Not only will it affect our animals and land but will also affect the water we drink.

Audio feature a variety of interviews/ pot cuts and analysis into plastic waste and pollution. With the interview from Laura along side an expert it really helps give a clear view of both sides and shows that Laura’s efforts are really good- although only time cam tell. Also, customer seem really enthusiastic about the shop and gives a sign that Laura’s shop will work and that more should open in order to create a change in the environment.
