Radio 1Xtra Stories: Hackney Young Reporters

BBC RADIO 1XTRA

Fourteen budding young reporters showcase the skills they learnt on the BBC 2012 Community Reporters - Hackney scheme, in this special Radio 1Xtra Stories.

Seven weeks ago a group of young people from east London started their placement on the BBC 2012 Community Reporters - Hackney scheme, receiving training in all aspects of journalism, working with programme makers to develop and produce their own radio content and getting to know the BBC from the inside.

The Hackney Young Reporters take a look at what's hot off the blocks in Hackney and East London ahead of Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, Radio 1's biggest ever free ticketed live music event taking place on 23 and 24 June, featuring over 100 international artists.
