BAFTA winner receives honorary degree for his work in television
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.
