As part of the learning process from the PUSH TV Project we introduced the Level 3 Certificate ‘Community TV Interviewer‘. This project builds on that concept.
We all have to crawl before we can walk and that is where ‘Have you Got a Minute’ comes in. The concept is really quite simple. The trainee interviewer picks a number of people in the locality who can be asked ‘Have you got a minute? and then get a minute of their time. It is simple, direct and not daunting.

Adult with Intellectual Disabilities
Remembering that an enhanced feeling of Personal Well-being is key to all our projects – we have to ask the question, does this project tick all the required boxes? For an Adult with Intellectual Disabilities – how does this project help?
- Each clip is only 1 minute long, so very achievable
- As the interviewer (s)he is center stage and very much in the eye of the community
- Going ‘out and about’ with a camera crew reduces the responsibility of getting it right – there is support and direction
- Key members of the community see abilities rather than disabilities
- It’s fun!
