CBBC & BBC Tour 2019

So today 44 of us visited the cbbc & bbc tour at Media City to see where some of our favourite programmes were filmed.

The children (and one of the mums) were able to have a go at presenting the Breakfast Show and the weather. They had fun learning about the effects of green fabric when using green screen for filming. Had a go at creating sound effects for radio and learned about dead sound. They visited several studios of different sizes, including Blue Peter and the one The Philharmonic use. They visited a ‘green room’ to find it wasn’t actually green! And sat in the make-up chairs.

This was a great experience for children and parents alike to learn what goes on behind the scenes. The tour guides were very informative and encouraged child/parent participation.

A good day had by all

    Hi, I was interested to see that you went on the BBC children’s studio tour at MediaCityUK and was very happy that everyone had a good time.

    I’ve copied a link above to the BBC MediaCity tours website, which also offers an interactive film presented by our own Hacker T Dog, with information about the tour, supporting access for anyone with a neurodivergent condition, in case it’s useful for any future trips. . If you have any difficulties with the link, let me know. Very Best, Sean (Neurodiversity Lead, BBC)
