We were thrilled to meet much loved and massively acclaimed star of stage and screen Dame Penelope Wilton (Credits include Downton Abbey, The BFG, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and much, much more besides) after graduation ceremonies on Thu, 20th July. She tells TUSU TV Presenter James Barker how she feels to have been awarded an Honorary Degree by Teesside University, reflects on her links with the North East and welcomes the growing equality we see in modern society.
Thanks to Tom Mcveigh for his work behind the camera.
TUSU TV chats to graduates who studied away from the main campus (Middlesbrough College, Hartlepool College, Stockton Riverside College etc.) about their experiences and gets their advice for future students. One youngster also has some very wise words for all of us at the very end of the video...make sure you stay tuned : - )
Thanks to Krishini Maniam who filmed all the interviews.
