Come and see what goes on behind Inside Out's scenes
With a week to go before our new series begins I'm gearing up to add some behind-the-scenes stuff about Inside Out. People often ask how we make the show, how long it takes to film the reports and investigations - even where we get our stories from.
I was out last Friday (7 October 2011) filming the links for the first show. As will become clear when the programme goes out we were using the Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge as a backdrop. Luck was with me as we had crystal blue skies. It looked great.
But if you fancy seeing first hand what goes on at the "Pink Palace" and want something different for a trip out for your club or society then why not come to the BBC in Newcastle?
You can now book yourselves onto a BBC Tour which gives you the chance to try your hand at a weather forecast, as well as tour the studios and meet some of the presenters.
As it happens we made a short film for the Tour which you can see below in which I was tasked to dig out some of the best bits over recent years. It was only when I put them all together that I realised just how impressive our back-catalogue is!
Anyway make sure you have Monday, 17 October 2011 marked in your diary. We return with a brand new series - every Monday at 7.30pm. I can't wait!
