Hello my name is Ryan I am in 3rd year. On Thursday the 15th March 2018, 8 of us went to BBC studios in Northern Ireland. It was me, Alanis, Katie, Kyle (my brother), Cerys, Trevor, Cain and Aliyah also 2 teachers and 2 classroom assistants. Miss Sturgeon, Mr Hughes, Mrs Gillespie and Mrs Jamison. We got into 2 groups of 4.
My group was me, Katie, Kyle, Cerys, Mrs Gillespie and Mr Hughes and the others were in the other group. Once we got there we went and saw behind the scenes of the weather, sports commentary and the news. After that my group went to the radio station studio. When we got there we learnt about the way they work. After that we went into a room that if you went to one end you couldn’t hear anything on the other side of the room even if you shouted – Kyle was the biggest fan!
After that we were given a script that we read over, then you went to mics and recorded it. After that we went to the recording booth and heard it. Then Frank the editor changed it to add sounds. It was the coolest thing ever and I would love to be a radio editor. Then when we finished at the radio station studio we met up with the other group at news table and the massive green screen.
I got a photo of me at the news table with kyle and they have a computer in the middle of the table. Then we left at the end of the day. It was a really good day and we all would love to go again and it also was very interesting.
