Abstract

My work experience placement at the BBC took place the week after I had completed my Avid Media Composer User Certification, so it was a very busy time for me! I was based in the corporations St. Helier studios, which is home to BBC Radio Jersey and BBC Channel Islands News. I hadnt expected to be able to work there during the summer, I had filled in an application earlier in the year and had totally forgotten about it.
It gave me such a great insight into the newsgathering process across both Radio and TV. Before my first day there, despite having spent time working in industry previously, I had never directly been required to do any journalist-type jobs, so it was a bit of a steep learning curve, but a thoroughly enjoyable one!
