Snippets of the SABC: Media Studies student excursion
On the 13 August 2015 Media Studies third year students went on an excursion to the SABC forming part of their Media Policy and Regulation course, led by Prinola Govenden and Dr. Ufuoma Akpojivi. It was a highly informative, educational and fun trip that introduced the students to the public service broadcasting sector and core policy and regulatory debates. The Head of the SABC's Policy and Regulatory Affairs Division Judy Monyela gave a lecture, during the question and answer session the students kept Judy on her toes and she was impressed with the difficult and pertinent questions posed by the Media Studies students. To remember the day, a group photo was taken inside the Morning Live studio. The two hour tour of the SABC ended in the studio of popular South African soapie Muvhango where the students were on their "best behavior" keenly watching the live filming of a scene.
