We asked this particular question as we wanted toget information regarding the impact on students inparticular but also get a broader insight as to how itwas affecting all people looking at the prospect ofuniversity. Also within our vox pops this questionhighlighted the level of knowledge that the averageperson had on the topic and in some cases showedhow times have evolved, particularly from moremature interviewee’s answers. For example fromstatements like ‘in my day’ and ‘when I went touniversity’. This all gave us a wider spectrum offeedback and research which improved the quality ofthe content within our documentary.
This question took a more broad approach looking atthe overall topic, trying to get different people’sopinions on the matter. We also asked this questionin order to try and provoke contrasting ideas so thatwe could represent both sides of the argument withinour documentary and identify any correlations orpatterns within our feedback.
We integrated this question to try and make sure thatwe were not focussing on the negatives. This alsoenabled us to find out not only if people thought thatthe situation could be improved but in what waysspecifically and how they would go about doing this.
This question made us consider other factors thatwere associated to our chosen topic and raised theissue that people could still get on perfectly well inlife without a degree. We felt that this couldstrengthen our documentary by making it morerounded and allowed us to develop points made bypeople in more detail.
This linked nicely to the previous question andallowed us to get different opinions on whether adegree is an essential when applying for good jobs.Consequently, getting all sorts of feedback that wecould then integrate into our documentary.
This question took a positive approach. We did this totry and make sure that we could portray both sides ofthe argument to a certain extent within ourdocumentary.
