Have you considered networking and talk to people who are working in the sector?

Most of the people are in London, so if you're a fair distance away, it's kind of difficult.
You should also note that a lot of the roles in TV and film are temporary i.e. you would be freelancing a lot of the time.
Finding work in that industry is very competitive and often requires a lot of temporary work around different studios before you get get your foot in the door. What kinds of jobs would you be looking for in that sector? As it has been said before, most of the jobs will be in London, although there are exciting studio developments in other areas, for example in Kent and in Sunderland.
