9 August: BBC Bristol Studios Tour

posted 11 May 2017, 11:48 by Marc Pepperell
Here is an opportunity to have brunch and a 2hr tour of your local BBC radio and TV studios.  Members are welcome to bring themselves and guests to brunch or the tour, or hopefully, both.  

Brunch will be at Bakesmiths, on just around the corner from the BBC.  They have a good selection of toasts and hot sandwiches with various fillings such as avocado, mushrooms, ham etc plus a drink included in the set price for the brunch.

We will then go round to BBC Bristol for their 1pm tour.  You will be amazed when you see your local television centre. We will see how programmes are made, both now and in the past. 

We will have the chance to visit the interactive studio where you can have a go at presenting the news and weather, and star in your own radio drama, complete with sound effects. We will also visit the Points West studio and Radio Bristol studios, and possibly the rooftop garden where the weather forecast is sometimes broadcast.
