Itinerary tbc –to give you an idea, last year the group was fortunate to have a tour to the BBC Weather Centre, talk to the One Show Producer; tour New Broadcasting House; meet with Huw Edwards and chat about the News; and then enjoy wine and nibbles in the hospitality room whilst chatting with various journalists. 

Comments from last year:

  • Everyone was absolutely thrilled and learnt a great deal.
  • I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I enjoyed this BBC visit and to thank you especially for including me and organising the event. We were very well looked after by Lorraine and Simon and our sessions with Huw Edwards, Hugh Pym and Rory Cellan-Jones were really great. It was good to meet Louise and all the others...altogether a very memorable and fascinating evening. 
  • I wanted to pass on our huge thanks for arranging and managing the tour on Tuesday afternoon. The whole group thoroughly enjoyed the trip and, more importantly, felt they learnt a great deal from the experience. You delivered a truly exceptional experience. Every element of the tour was interesting and gave incredible insights to the whole BBC operation. Please do pass on our thanks to everyone that made time to talk to us – we know you all have very busy schedules and we really do appreciate them, taking time out of their days to be with us.
  • I’ve had several comments from participants how much they valued the tour – and, without doubt, Huw has convinced everyone (as if there was any doubt!) that 39p a day is more than value for money for the incredible service you all deliver.
