Event description

Description

From Newsround to undercover investigations for BBC Panorama to the ITV children's adventure series Bear Grylls Survival School, TV producer Marshall Corwin has been privileged to work in broadcasting through an extraordinary era of change. The only formal training the Emmy and 4 times BAFTA-winning producer ever had was a maths degree - but it's proved one of his most valuable assets as the technological revolution has transformed the industry.

Marshall grew up in Leeds and, after reading Maths at Oxford University, he taught in a large Comprehensive school. He began his broadcasting career in BBC Radio and moved to BBC TV in 1989 to join Newsround. He filmed the rescue of child carpet slaves in India, raids to free dancing bears in Greece, and the lives of children caught up in the war in Bosnia. His film ‘War Child’ won an International Emmy.

After a spell producing science programmes including ‘Tomorrow’s World’ and the ‘1999 Total Eclipse’, he created the ‘Serious..’ adventure series filming young people literally going to extremes to help the planet. In a series of world firsts, teams of 12-15 year old children travelled across the frozen Arctic on husky sleds in temperatures as low as minus forty, climbed to twenty thousand feet in the Andes, rounded the notorious Cape Horn, walked fifty miles across the Namib Desert to the Skeleton Coast, lived rough in remote jungle to help endangered species such as orang utans, and been first to abseil off Kaieteur Falls in Guyana, the world’s most powerful single-drop waterfall.

Marshall was founder and senior tutor of the ‘Media Master’ media training company, and is also an established factual author. Among his titles are ‘Extreme Survival: an Adventurer’s Guide to the World’s Most Dangerous Places’ and ‘The Newsround Book of Space’. Marshall has always loved passing on his experience and inspiring young people, opening their eyes to the amazing world beyond their doorstep.
