Two 7-year-old children meet Curious Cat, who asks them if they would like to find out how television programmes are made. The children visit a TV studio to see how programmes are filmed. They operate the cameras and learn how an autocue and earpiece work. They visit the gallery to see how a live programme is put together. An expert explains how programmes are made into waves and sent by satellites dishes up to a satellite in space, which transmits the waves back down to homes across the UK. They return to the classroom to tell Curious Cat what they have learnt.

Classroom Ideas

Could be used to add breadth to sound and light topics. The clip could be used as a stimulus for children to create their own television programme about how television programmes are made. This clip would provide good cross-curricular links with ICT and literacy, use of equipment, angles, editing, scripts and directions.
