“These students will join us on Friday, September 3, 2010 to get an inside vision of the TV market and help build their skills as they prepare to enter the TV industry,” says Cherise Barsell, DISCOP Africa Executive Manager. “We look forward to working with them and we hope to see them all again at future editions of DISCOP AFRICA as Buyers and Producers!”
