BBC PLYMOUTH STUDIO VISIT
Wednesday 28 November 2019
12 members of Tavistock Inner Wheel, accompanied by 7 husbands,
enjoyed a fascinating visit to BBC Plymouth studios. We were welcomed
by James Watts who was our host and guide for the tour.
After a brief introduction we started our visit with Matt Woodley
in the Radio Devon control room, before moving on to watch the lunchtime
Spotlight news with the control room sound effects coming through
just as they were to Justin and then weather reporter Dan, with
all the timing complexities.
We then went in to the Spotlight studio where we were made very
welcome by Julie who is in charge of getting the programme on air,
Justin and Dan, who was very perky at the end of his shift which
had started at 4.30 am, having done far more weather bulletins than
we could have imagined, some live and some recorded for several
radio and TV stations throughout the country, none of which are
scripted, while also creating weather maps and editing the photos
sent in by the public.
Julie then took us in to the gallery, or control room, where she
and Simon, the director, gave us more insight into the creation
of the programmes and the seamless way that they can transfer from
London to the regions.
We would thoroughly recommend this visit to any clubs, but it did
take 15 months to come together
