Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience up for BAFTA

First published in News by

RISCA based production company Zipline Creative is celebrating following a second BAFTA nomination for its popular BBC series, Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience.

The second series has been selected for the category of 'Best Presenter' for Rhod's efforts during his 3-day attempt at becoming a tattoo artist.

Nathan Mackintosh, a producer on the show, said: "The viewing figures and audience response has always been really strong, so it’s great to see the critics give us a nod too."

"Rhod pushed himself to extreme lengths for this episode, he ended up getting a tattoo just to see what it would feel like before he tattooed his first victim. Now that's what I would call commitment."

The nomination follows last year's BAFTA win for best factual series and a Celtic Media Award for best factual entertainment series.

The third series has just finished its second run on BBC Wales, and will soon be broadcast to a UK wide audience on BBC2. Zipline now face a tense wait until the awards, which will be held on September 30 in Cardiff's Millennium Centre.
