Hello everyone! the day finally arrived and yesterday Tuesday 28th, was our first day of training for the BBC 2012 / Olympics Community Reporter scheme. A busy day 9 -6pm and a bit tireing but enjoyable.
The morning was spent mainly with "housekeeping" and getting to know the others (11 all told), before lunch and a quick tour of the studios. Went into the Blue Peter studio but couldn't find any badges lying around. Apparently they're like gold dust.
The afternoon was spent with the lovely Clare, an experienced Journalist and journalism trainer, who asked the question "what is news"?
Three hours later we used our new found knowledge to try and and find six stories from the days newspapers for a news round up. Seemingly we didn't do bad job and it was a lot of fun.
Off to do my homework now!! Everyday's a school day!!
