On our Performing Arts and Media Careers Academy trip, we visited the BBC Broadcasting House in London.
The group outside of the BBC
We started the day by viewing the BBC news area; the second largest news room in the world. We then had a tour of the old and new buildings, learning about the history behind the BBC and the role it played in the war.
During the trip, we were lucky enough to be taken to the set of The One Show and watched a virtual tour of Radio 1. We were also shown how green screens work during the news and weather forecasts and some of us got to try out using a green screen and an autocue which was a fantastic experience!
The trip was extremely interesting; giving us great insight into the BBC and life in the media industry.
