BTEC Creative Media at The BBC

Students studying BTEC Creative Media Production visited BBC Mailbox on Monday. During the visit they took part in a ‘careers in media’ workshop before being given a VIP tour of the broadcaster’s facilities including radio studios, the Midlands Today TV studio and the nerve centre of live TV broadcasting known as The Gallery. Students also met and chatted with Midlands Today presenter Mary Rhodes, who gave them some real insights into her job as a journalist and how her career in news broadcasting developed.
