    TV production graduates win top award and set sights on major TV show

    Joshua Goode and Madelen Nygaard recognised at Edinburgh International Television Festival for revolutionary new show The Switch

    Middlesex television production graduates Joshua Goode and Madelen Nygaard won top prize in the Test Card ‘Unscripted’ category at the prestigious Edinburgh International Television Festival for their original TV show, The Switch.

    The pair beat over 2,000 other hopefuls to pick up the award, which they hope will give them the opportunity to compete with established shows like The Voice and Britain’s Got Talent.

    The Switch challenges two musicians – with distinctly different musical styles – to take each others’ lyrics and create a new tune around them in their own style.

    This is not the first award Joshua and Madelen have won for The Switch – the show was also “highly commended” runner-up in the University’s TV Production Awards at the British Film Institute this summer.

    “Perseverance, passion and belief have been key elements to the success of our show, things that will influence everything I do going forward.” Joshua. TV production graduate

    “We’re delighted to win this award and hope it helps our show get noticed by a TV production company that can help us bring it to mainstream TV,” says Joshua.

    Madelen - the show’s director – has also learnt a lot from the project, especially when it comes to handling critics.

    “We knew the concept for The Switch was something special, we just had to prove it to everyone else," she says.

    “Creating the show has taught me to never back down on what you think is right.” Madelen, TV production graduate

    Congratulations to Joshua and Madelen – we can’t wait to see what you do in the future!
