Ridley Scott’s first dabbling in film started whilst studying Graphic Design at Londons Royal College of Art (RCA) between the years of 1960-1962, upon graduating he went on to work as a trainee set designer with the BBC. Ridley Worked on successful Tv shows: Dr Who & Z cars before moving into directing TV adverts such as the “Hovis Bike Round”, then finally on to Hollywood and the rest is film history!
