Christie Park Primary visit to BBC Scotland

Pupils from Christie Park Primary visited the BBC in Glasgow to meet staff and see behind the scenes in the television studio.

Members of the school’s Press Gang committee, made up of pupils from P4-P7 wrote to the BBC asking for help with learning about the industry. A journalist from the news team visited the school and shared information about his job and helped the children plan and make an information video about the new nursery within the school.

During the visit to the BBC, pupils were given a tour of the news department and told about the jobs people do in the news team. Pupils visited the studio of Reporting Scotland where they heard what it is like to be a news reader and weather forecaster, use the cameras and autocue.

Pupils visited the Gallery where they met the director of the news who explained what happens in the gallery, the people who work together and the important job they do. The children also visited the set of the Nine and in that gallery saw radio news being broadcast live and saw a news package being edited. The pupils visited the set of Saturday Mash Up and were given a tour of the set, props and seen how they put the programme together.

The pupils had an amazing time and learned so much about news production and what roles and technology is required to put together a news broadcast.
