We were very lucky to have fantastic tour guides in Jenny, Verity, Lee and Eleanor who took us behind the scenes to see some of the studios and equipment used everyday for broadcasting our favourite CBBC programmes. We had a go at reading from an autocue to present Newsround and CBBC It was very interesting to learn about green screen technology when we presented the weather report. We went in the BBC Sport studio which had A LOT of lights and very expensive cameras; we also sat in the chair where Gary Linekar gets his hair and make up done before the show! It was amazing to see the studios used for Blue Peter and CBBC - they look very different in real life! The time flew by but we all had a lot of fun despite the rain, as you can see in the photographs.
The CBBC studio was great fun!
We had top walk between the different BBC buildings
