BBC Writersroom Announce the Names of This Year’s Trainee Directors
BBC Writersroom, Creative Skillset and Directors UK are delighted to announce the names of this year’s trainee directors for the Continuing Drama Directors’ Training Scheme.
Now in its second year, the scheme is building on its successful debut year and expanding its regional reach, and for the first time, trainees will be placed in BBC Studios’ River City; the remaining trainees will be placed on Doctors, Holby City, and Casualty. All dramas are produced by BBC Studios.
- Doctors: Isher Sahota, Jennie Padden, Miranda Howard-Williams
- Holby City: Christiana Ebohon-Green, Samantha Harrie
- Casualty: Imogen Murphy, Karen Kelly
- River City: Sacha Kyle, Robin Haig
As part of their training, each director will spend time on one of the BBC’s continuing drama shows, observing and participating in the entire production process of an episode, from pre to post production. The candidate will complete their training by directing a full episode of the show they’re training on.
