Ambitious young creatives from Camden recently stepped behind some of the world’s most famous microphones as they were given a backstage tour of BBC Broadcasting House.
The interactive tour was designed to inspire the young people, who are between eight and 11 years old, to think about careers in broadcasting. As part of the experience all of the aspiring broadcasters got the chance to try out a microphone, visit ‘Albert Square’ and meet a Dalek.
One Housing Youth Worker, Shuab Miah, said:
“This was a fantastic experience that opened the eyes of the young people to the opportunities that are available to them. Camden is such an artistic neighbourhood and we are working hard to nurture the area’s future talent.”
Head of TV Sport at the BBC, Philip Bernie, said:
“Camden has a great history of producing creative broadcasters and it was exciting to have the next generation come to see us at Broadcasting House. It’s important that young people from all backgrounds have the chance to be inspired to pursue a creative career in the media.”
