Middlesex University Graduation Ceremony
In 2010 Galaxy Video recorded and distributed the graduation ceremonies that took place at Middlesex University.
Taking place over five days, there were fifteen ceremonies in total. Each student was then able to purchase his or her own DVD of the graduation immediately after the ceremony or purchase it at a later date.
Galaxy Video has since improved its service further by being able to stream the ceremony live, online.
At every graduation ceremony many well known figures receive honorary degrees. We have been able to interview some of those that have been honoured. Here are a few examples:
The Author of the children’s classic, ‘The Snowman’ is interviewed following the awarding of his honorary fellowship from The University of Arts London.
Raymond Briggs was born in London in 1934 and studied at Wimbledon School of Art and the Slade School of Art, London. His first work was in advertising, but he soon began to win acclaim as a children’s book illustrator as well as teaching illustration at Brighton College of Art.
Raymond Briggs also writes books for adults: When the Wind Blows (1982), a grim satire on nuclear war, which has also been made into a play and a film, and The Tin Pot Foreign General and The Old Iron Woman (1984), an attack on the Falklands war.
The ceramic designer received the Honorary Degree of Master of the University for An Outstanding Contribution to the Ceramics Industry Internationally
Her father, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis created the world famous Portmeirion village, the unique, picturesque town famous for being the location in the hit 60’s TV show, The Prisoner and for its pottery.
With Portmeirion Potteries, Susan Williams-Ellis continued in her father’s fine tradition and soon became successful in her own right through her “practical, beautiful and affordable” designs.
She passed away on November 27th 2007, aged 89.
Dame Kelly secured her place in history by becoming the first British female athlete to win both the 800m and 1500m, in the 2004 Olympic Games. She received the honorary degree along side Kelly Sotherton, one of Britain’s leading heptathletes and a former Brunel student.
The latter is a Commonwealth gold medalist and an Olympic bronze medalist. In 2005, Kelly broke the British indoor record for the 100m hurdles, previously held by Olympic gold medalist Sally Gunnell, at the opening of the Indoor Athletics Centre at Brunel University.
Paul Dickenson, former BBC sports commentator who has an honorary master’s degree from Brunel, interviewed both athletes.
An interview with the legendary hair stylist as he receives an honorary degree from The University of the Arts London.
Due to the popularity of his styles, he has been described as “a rock star, an artist, [and] a craftsman who ‘changed the world with a pair of scissors.
His “wash and wear” philosophy liberated women from the “tyranny of the salon” and “revolutionised the art of hairstyling.” Sassoon’s styles became “emblematic of freedom and good health,” and their popularity allowed him to open the first chain of worldwide hair styling salons, complemented by his hair-treatment products. He is also remembered for his television commercials in the 1960s. A documentary film about his life, Vidal Sassoon: The Movie, was released in 2010.
