If you are interested in this visit please email firstname.lastname@example.org to go on the waiting list for this visit (places often become available) and for details of further visits next year.
The CIPR Corporate and Financial Group invites you to tour the BBC Newsroom at BBC Broadcasting House, the state of the art, multimedia broadcasting centre on Tuesday 8th December. We will be shown round the newsroom and learn how the news programmes are put together. We hope to meet the Duty Producer, see the Weather Centre, meet someone in the One Show studio, and possibly see the Radio Drama studio if available. There will be an appropriate person to talk about the operation and answer any questions that you might have at each stage. We hope that some senior journalists will be able to join us for a short Q&A session over drinks. Kamal Ahmed, Business Editor and Hugh Pym, formerly Business Correspondent and now Health Editor have both said they hope to join us, depending on commitments.
Tickets are £70 each (the cost is subsidised by the Corporate and Financial Group). Attendees have thoroughly enjoyed the visit in the past, and vouch for it being a fun event. As places are strictly limited to 10 people, you are strongly advised to secure your booking with payment as soon as possible. This is a Members priority event (non members who want to attend should join the group or email email@example.com to go on the waiting list should spaces become available).
As a guide, last year's itinerary is below (this will be amended for this year). We hope to be able to replicate the visit from last year, but this is an open plan, live broadcast area.
