Year 12 Journalism students got a taste of broadcasting on their visit to BBC Broadcasting House in Belfast.
Their tour gave them exclusive access to the TalkBack where past PC student Laura Truman (Blakely) who works on the production team was able to provide some inside tips on working in Broadcasting.
Following visits to BBC 2 continuity and Hugo Duncan in his new studio at Radio Ulster, the highlight of the tour was access to the Gallery for the Newsline LIVE broadcast at 1:30pm. Students observed the producers lining up footage, audio clips and autocue while hearing countdowns and calls for OOV amongst other jargon Broadcasters use.
Students were inspired to write their own news scripts in preparation for their forthcoming Broadcasting Assessment.
