BBC to Visit Local College

The BBC will be visiting Stratford-upon-Avon College on Saturday 6th November to film college students for Children in Need.

Each year the College’s media students produce a special “Children in Need” show which is streamed live on www.stratcast.co.uk||. Last year a number of student presenters covered the various events throughout the day including live performances and a live quiz show. Pre-recorded material was also featured. This year the programme is entitled “Stratford College does Children in Need 2010”. The BBC will be filming media students while they are recording a performance by performing arts students. Some of the footage will be broadcast nationally on 19th November.  

Sophie Blount, HND Media student and producer commented on last year’s event, “I have always enjoyed watching the BBC's Children in Need show and as a media student always thought about how much fun it would be to work on the live show. Every year I receive the Pudsey reminder through the post and last year decided I should do something different with the hope to raise enough money to improve a child's life. I had the fantastic idea of producing my very own version of the BBC's Children in Need show.”

Andy Tyers, Programme Area Manager, said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for both our media and performing arts students to show they care and do what they do best. It is wonderful to get the recognition from the BBC for all the hard work and dedication that the students have put into this exciting project.”
