Family Impact: Reward Day

You may remember the Prison My Parent and Me documentary that was aired on BBC a few months ago (Click Here if you don’t) Well the Children involved in the making of the documentary went on a Rewards day to Media City in Manchester, as a treat for all there hard work around the Documentary.

The BBC Radio 5 Live was the first stop on the tour, the Children got to be Radio presenters for the morning and found out first hand just what it takes to have a career in Radio. The group got a look in the Recording booth for when artists sing Live on the show and even got to have a go of some of the instruments famous artists have used.

Next the group set there sights on the TV studios where they got a behind the scenes look at some of their favourite TV shows which included some stories and some tips on how the presenters and actors do there shows the group even got to try on some of the costumes and test the props. They also had the chance to work on the BBC North West Tonight set, presenting the News and Weather. (I think this was our volunteer Paul’s favourite part)

It was a fantastic day out and a truly well deserved one!
