By joining a man's world, as they put it, AGATHA BERNETT CHRISTIE has revolutionised the technical aspect of television production in the Bahamas. Agatha Bernett Christie is known for her Go Get It mentality and has been described as a feisty lady. Christie began working for the Bahamas Broadcasting Company, also known as ZNS, in 1988. She began as a production assistant, aiding where she was required. Christie was determined to learn more about the video side of production after discovering her affinity for photography and understanding that media was her calling.
As a result of her efforts, she was able to gain access to an section where only men worked; there had never been a woman in this department, known as the ENG for the News Room. Something occurred in the year 1989. As she took on the challenge, she was threatened by male counterparts who warned her that she was entering a man's world and that she would be treated as such, expecting she would not survive long. She took on the challenge and entered a man's world with her ambition to learn more about ENG and Cameras.
Christie was the first woman in the Bahamas to be known as a camerawoman or ENG photojournalist. In the field of ENG News, no other female has taken up the task of being a Camera Woman. After much deliberation and consideration, she decided to qualify herself and seek a Bachelor's Degree in Television Production from the University of Oral Roberts, which she received in 1995. Christie returned home and quickly put what she had learnt into practice.
She was now assigned to the News Room, where she began editing news articles for the 7 p.m. newscast and was occasionally required to control studio cameras. During this time, she was noted for her meticulous work and always professional demeanor. If you needed the work done right the first time, she was the person to contact. Christie decided after much contemplation to branch out into another sector that would extend her as a professional and a Media Consultant after 15 years at the Broadcasting Company ZNS.
This decision secured her a 14-year job as Operations and Television Production Manager and Media Consultant at Bahamas Faith Ministries International Diplomacy Media and Communication. Ms. Christie has worked on international and national television shows, talk shows, commercials, infomercials, and documentaries. Christie has collaborated and toured with a number of notable speakers, including the late Dr. Myles Munroe, Benny Hinn, Maures Cerello, CeCe Winans, Les Brown, Bill Moss Jr., and others. Because she is passionate about what she does, she must always maintain a high degree of excellence and diligence in her work.
Agatha has also established and taught local and worldwide media companies for small and large churches who want to create a television ministry or media house. Ms Christie is a well-rounded individual who believes in producing high-quality work, resulting in high levels of appreciation from those she works for and with. She's also a freelance photographer and a Toastmasters member. Despite her hectic life in broadcast media, she still found time to write this book, Made Single, as well as a book about the late Dr. Myles Munroe, BEHIND THE SCENE WITH DR. MYLES MUNROE.
