Working in the media is a demanding and competitive career choice. Confidence, knowledge and first class presentation skills are vital to success in this field. The best proven formula for success is through a professionally produced showreel. Past Preservers, having extensive media experience, has identified the need for professional training and production services aimed specifically at historians, anthropologists and archaeologists to enable them to get the best from their skills, knowledge and experience.

Past Preservers is pleased to announce that we will be offering regular training weekends, covering a range of professional training and development skills. The presenters will be known professionals with extensive experience in the media. The sessions will focus on your needs as a presenter, researcher and or media/heritage specialist.

The first of these will be held this spring at a venue in the beautiful Lake District. The instructors will include Fiona Armstrong, the well-known broadcaster and author, and Jim Mower, a producer of the extremely popular TV series 'Time Team'.

In addition to her work in television, Fiona is an experienced heritage professional who runs her own company, 'Border Heritage' and has been involved as a director and manager of heritage projects. Jim Mower has worked on numerous historical and archaeological documentaries for international broadcasters and is also an experienced field and research archaeologist. Now a senior producer on the Channel 4 series Time Team, Jim’s work includes programme development, production and directing.

Together, with other specialists, our instructors will provide a first class team to develop your skills as a professional presenter. At the end of the weekend, every attendee will have his or her own professionally produced showreel.

Places will be EXTREMELY limited and so we would suggest that if you would like to attend, please make a statement of interest as soon as possible. Please email

Best wishes, from the Past Preservers Team
