rhubarbTV is Royal Holloway's unique broadcasting and recording brand.
Run by students, for students, rhubarbTV is Royal Holloway's student television station. Having relaunched in March 2013, rhubarbTV offers a brand new student media experience across campus. In January 2015, rhubarbTV moved into a new studio in the Students' Union, complete with green screen for TV production.
The station allows students to engage with numerous aspects of television production: from producing to writing, directing to acting, or filming to editing: there are ample opportunities for students to get involved, whether they want to hone in on existing skills or develop new ones they never knew they had. In June 2014, rhurbarbTV was named the Royal Holloway Media Outlet of the Year at the first ever Student Media Awards.
What we do
rhubarbTV broadcasts a diverse range of programmes meaning there's something for everyone to enjoy. We work towards creating an array of content including a mixture of outside broadcasts and recorded coverage as well as original content written for the station by students.
By working with societies and sports clubs we hope to improve student involvement and participation with the Students’ Union, to encourage debate and discussion of issues affecting students through current affairs programmes and to help educate students above and beyond the realm of their current academic course through educational shows, such as cookery programmes.
A new Production Board is elected at the end of each academic year, allowing for a large number of students to get involved with the day-to-day running of the station. Equally the Station Managers are elected in a full cross-campus election every year.
We're always on the lookout for new members wanting to get involved in something a little bit different. Whether you're well versed in all aspects of television production or a complete amateur, there's always something for you here at rhubarbTV.
