Gateway 97.8 was part of a brand new BBC Tour at the weekend, when their entertaining and informative guides brought to life the work of the BBC’s brand new, state of the art, multimedia broadcasting centre for our members and presenters in the heart of London.
On the tour, some of the things we experienced included a camera’s eye view via their big screen into some of the studios broadcasting to the nation, including television and radio news studios, as well as hearing about the rich history of the building and the BBC.
We looked down on their new state of the art newsroom and we even had the opportunity to have a go at reading the news and weather ourselves on their news set!
We got told about how BBC Radio Drama is made and had a go at making our very own radio play completed with music and sound effects! We even got the chance to peek into the newly restored Radio Theatre where Radio 2 concerts and popular radio comedy shows such as Just a Minute, the News Quiz and The Now Show have recently been recorded.
The tour lasted approximately one and half hours and all of us found it informative, interesting and fun.[nggallery id=16]
