Northwood School students visit BBC Broadcasting House to report on the building's Children in Need events.
School Reporters from left to right Jessica, Chelsea, Daniel, Aaron, Sinthiya, Ryan, Tilly, and Parmis from Northwood School were ready and raring to report on the Children in Need events taking place in BBC Broadcasting House as soon as they saw the building! Here is the story of their visit in their own words....
"We were excited and nervous as we headed into Western House (the home of Radio 2) for our first task of the day - interviewing Jeremy Vine."
"Jeremy Vine was really kind when Parmis and Tilly interviewed him. We heard it through the grape-Vine himself that he thinks Radio 2 is the best radio station."
"As it was Children in Need, Jeremy Vine was glad to wear the Pudsey ears with us in his studio."
"Back at Broadcasting House - Pudsey joined dance troupe Rough Diamond to get everyone dancing and fundraising on every floor of the building."
"Afterwards we got a bear hug from Pudsey - he looks so much bigger than he does on TV!"
"We were heading down to see the Asian Network's busking event when we saw the Children in Need fundraisers dressed up in reception - they were doing really well with their collection."
"Outside the building, the BBC Asian Network were holding a 'Busking for the Bear' event. The first artist we saw was the rapper Cynikal."
"Punjabi vocalist San2 came up next. Parmis thought the music was really unique and said it was nice to get a flavour of different cultures. Daniel was impressed by San2's enormous vocal range."
"Aaron (right) and Daniel impressed the rapper Sin-Seer with their interview questions. Afterwards Sin-Seer said that he wished he'd been able to prepare in advance to answer them and added: 'They were really good, it's one of the best interviews I've ever had.'"
"H-Dhami was the last performer we saw - when he saw us in the crowd he gave us a shout-out and made us form a train around the piazza whilst he played his hit track 'Rail Gadi'."
"At first it was just us, but it was so infectious that everyone started joining in - including our teacher Mr Clyne, which was really funny!"
"H-Dhami was really nice - when we interviewed him he told us that before he started singing he actually wanted to be a footballer."
"After all that excitement we went back indoors to edit and review all our day's content - which was hard work - but it rounded off an amazing day! We didn't want to leave!"
