A budding producer from Colchester has received thousands of pounds in funding from the Royal Television Society (RTS).
Jessica Bell was awarded the money ahead of her degree course in film and television production at the University of Hertfordshire.
The funding - £1,000 a year – is only offered to 22 television production and broadcast journalism students, with another seven bursaries available for computing and engineering undergraduates.
The schemes are funded by the Society, which will invest a total of £87,000 in youngsters this year.
The recipients were selected by a panel of industry professionals following an open call to UK students.

Theresa Wise, CEO of the RTS, said: “The RTS has supported 101 inspiring and talented individuals towards their educational goals via our bursary schemes.
“The schemes are important as they offer those from lower income backgrounds not only financial support, but access to mentoring and a network of contacts within the broadcasting industry.”
