Students launch their own TV soap
Students traditionally spend several hours a week watching TV soaps.
Now undergraduates at Bath Spa University are appearing in their own.
The first episodes of a new online soap opera, produced, written and performed by students at the Newton Park campus, were filmed this week.
The plotlines of Liquid Soap will cover everything from relationships to politics and is a soap in more senses than one - being set entirely in the toilets of a university cafe.

It will be webcast in five-minute episodes from next autumn. At least 15 episodes a year are planned, with a new one being released every fortnight during term time.
Filming will take place on a specially constructed set in the University Theatre, and episode one is scheduled to go live on October 12.
The project is led by drama lecturer and onetime EastEnders producer and director Chris Jury and Nic Jeune, who is director of Bath Spa University production company Artswork Media.
Nic said: "A soap can reflect and react to the lifestyle, interests and concerns of the core audience like no other form of TV drama. By combining the structure of a soap with an edgy comedic style we hope to engage directly with the student audience."
