Lights... Camera... Action!
Year 9 students from a Pudsey school have been given a glimpse of the technology and skills needed when it comes to broadcasting some the country's most popular TV and radio programmes.
During a behind-the-scenes tour of the BBC's Media City in Salford, the 34 Fulneck School pupils got the opportunity to "present" Breakfast Time and deliver the weather forecast, plus visit the Match of the Day and Blue Peter studios.
Additionally, the teenagers went into a Radio 6 digital studio, and got to use the hi-tech equipment needed in broadcasting to a world-wide audience.
Fulneck School Year 9 teacher Robin Rhoades, said:
"Media City is a fantastic facility, and this was a day when the pupils' eyes were well and truly opened to the different jobs in radio and television.
"In addition to those in front of the cameras and behind the microphone, there are a host of other support roles needed, including journalists, technicians, directors, cameramen and sound technicians.
"This was the first time a party from Fulneck School has been to Media City and it's my hope it will become a yearly visit.
"The students had a superb day, which was made even better by seeing the actual studios where the likes of Blue Peter and Match of the Day are broadcast from."
