We'll be taking a look inside ourselves and the human body on the last ever episode of CULTURE SHOCK!

Join us at 5pm on November 15th




Alex Cartlidge - Producer Episode 5

Over the last 2 years, Alex has produced and directed live comedy shows across the UK. The sketch show "Britney" played to sell out audiences in London, Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh, gaining rave reviews and mentions in The Guardian and Evening Standard. Alex has been running Country Mile Comedy Club in London since October 2016, raising money for a different charity every month, and regularly filled with comic stars of screen, stage and radio. Whilst at University, Alex produced several short films, was the President of the prestigious Marlowe Society, and also tour managed the Cambridge Footlights International Tour Show across the UK and America, playing to sell out crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In the summer, he directed the NFTS project "The Lowdown", which featured stand-up, live-music and political discussions. His aim is to be a comedy director and producer after graduating from the NFTS.


Vicky Swain- Producer Episode 5

From working in a cinema to graduating with a degree in Film and Television last year, Vicky has always been at home producing media. After learning studio practices on both drama and factual productions she has since focused her efforts on television and also worked on a variety of media and marketing teams within scouting – both at a local and national level including event photography and live-event filming. Most recently, Vicky produced a pilot for ‘The Witching Hour’, a new multi-camera paranormal show which explored local hauntings. She’s looking forward to trying out multi-camera directing for the first time on Culture Shock.
