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 sport teams.


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 and any school or student parties, clubs or groups who would like to take up the offer should phone 0780737 36755 or email to book a place.


"We can take a maximum of 30 people at a time and each session will last around 50 minutes. Book early to make sure you are not disappointed – or just turn up on the day."
