Director 72 Films, London. The Mighty Redcar, BBC 2 Documentary.

For the BBC documentary The Mighty Redcar we wanted to find a young person and give them the chance to be the narrator. Everyone we spoke to recommended Imagine You Can to find young people who were confident and passionate about their area. We met Madison and she told us about her work with Imagine You Can. We thought she was brilliant, and it was clear that the work the IYC had done with her and given her a special kind of confidence I rarely see in my job with people of her age. I can't thank Dave enough for helping us and I think what we've achieved is giving a young person the chance to talk about her area in a way which shows the realities but also shows how proud they are of it too.
