The twelve students were given a grand tour of the £1Bn complex, which included a look at The One Show studio and a chance to see the central newsroom in action. They were also shown the technological innovations in news, radio, television and online services that have made Broadcasting House the industry leader that it is today.
As part of their visit, the students also took turns to be news presenters, weather forecasters and radio actors. Katia Guerreiro-Braga, was one of the lucky media students to get in front of the camera. "It was really exciting to be in the news studio and reading the autocue," she said. "It's not as easy as you'd think but it was great fun and the whole day was really interesting."
