Students go celebrity spotting at the BBC...

Business Studies students at The Gateway Academy were recently given the opportunity to visit the BBC television studios as part of their Focus Friday activity.  Students had great delight celebrity spotting whilst experiencing how the business side of the BBC operates.

Staff and students took an exclusive look into the BBC newsroom, visited some of the BBC’s famous studios and sat on the set of ‘Match of the Day’ as well as ‘Blue Peter’. The students were able see where the game show ‘Pointless’ is filmed and were lucky enough to see the set up for ‘Children in Need’.

The tour concluded by the students making their own article for TV in an interactive studio. They experienced a very creative side of the business and also took a look at careers in the media industry, which they may never have thought existed.
