The Speaker Episode 5 of 8

Seven teenagers are still fighting it out in a bid to become Britain's Best Young Speaker. Broadcaster and journalist Kate Silverton puts the Speakers through their paces and tests their storytelling skills, as the teenagers take on the daunting task of becoming news reporters.

Each Speaker has to broadcast a live news report from London Zoo which is beamed, via satellite, to newscaster Matthew Amroliwala in the BBC Studios. It is a tough challenge as the youngsters are forced to deal with technology, timings and live animals.

The three Speakers who fail to impress will have to speak again in front of Kate Silverton and judges Jo Brand, John Amaechi and Jeremy Stockwell. For one of them, it will be their final performance in the contest.
