A FOR­MER Bucks school pupil and BAFTA win­ner will re­ceive an honorary de­gree for his work in tele­vi­sion.

Jamie Aitchi­son was a pupil at Dr Chal­loner’s Gram­mar School in Che­sham Road, Amer­sham, in the 1980s be­fore study­ing his­tory and pol­i­tics at Keele Univeristy.

He was one of nine peo­ple to be awarded an honorary de­gree by the same univer­sity where he stud­ied this week.

His fa­ther Craig Aitchi­son said: “They are key fig­ures who have made a ma­jor im­pact, with sig­nif­i­cant work over many years in health, science, re­search, broad­cast­ing, the lo­cal com­mu­nity, ed­u­ca­tion, busi­ness, jour­nal­ism and the trade union move­ment.”

Jamie, 43, is a com­mis­sion­ing edi­tor for sport for Chan­nel Four and he won the Sport and Live Event BAFTA in 2013 for its cov­er­age of the Lon­don 2012 Par­a­lympic Games.
