BBC News and Sport Roadshow comes to Glasgow
Are you the new Jackie Bird, Heather the Weather or Dougie Vipond?
BBC News and Sport are bringing their Roadshow to Glasgow on Saturday 22 and
Sunday 23 September 2007 from 10am to 6pm each day.
The roadshow is a great opportunity to find out how news and sports
programmes are made.
A special studio will be located in Millennium
Square beside the new BBC headquarters at Pacific Quay and all the family
will get the chance to present some of their favourite programmes and see
themselves on the big screen.
Come along and have a go at reading the
news for television or radio; try your skills at weather-presenting or
sports-commentating; and put together some stories for news online.
You can meet reporters and presenters from BBC Scotland's news and
sports programmes as well as some well-known faces from the UK news and
Behind-the-scenes roles are also up for grabs: people can
have a go at operating the camera, working the autocue or vision mixing;
and anyone who takes part in reading the news will get a DVD of their
performance to take away as a memento of the day.
Producer Myra Reid said: "There's something for everyone – we want to
give people a taste of what broadcasting is all about.
"All are welcome
