New homes for a BBC microphone cube

School Reporters from The Gordon Schools in Aberdeenshire were the latest to take up our BBC microphone challenge, with some innovative photographic locations. Can you do better?
School Reporters from The Gordon Schools in Aberdeenshire were the latest to take up our BBC microphone cube photographic challenge. Luckily the weather was kind and made for a lovely view of the impressive school buildings.
Spring may still be in its infancy but Gordons' budding photojournalists found an abundance of flowers close at hand, as this cube bouquet proves.
Alas, poor Yorick didn't know he was being used as a prop for a BBC News accessory in this theatrical close-up.
We wonder if Yorick's creator, and the nation's most famous playwright, would have approved of being used as a microphone hat stand? But then, all's well that ends well.
The mic cube then booked a place amongst the works of some other, more modern writers.
Nestled alongside a collection of bric-a-brac is not the most obvious place you would expect to come across a BBC School Report mic cube. But that's the whole idea behind our photographic challenge!
And we wonder who shouldered the responsibility for balancing art and creativity in this picture?
This is maybe the only time a BBC mic cube has been spotted cadging a lift on a motorbike.
Let's hope the wasps who built this rather impressive nest were not around to witness the gatecrashing of a strange cuboid visitor.
Is the BBC microphone cube the one that he wanted?
Heart of the matter - can you beat this as a home for a BBC School Report mic cube? If so, email us at email@example.com.
It's very interesting to contrast a very modern piece of press equipment with a very old one.
Just another brick in the wall.
We hope whatever is in these science jars is still not alive!
