Trip to Sky News CentrePosted: 15/03/12
On Wednesday the Sky News centre in Osterley played host to the Year 10 English Media classes.
The students started by going on a tour of the building. The fun began when they started to look at how news stories are created. The team at Sky showed them how to choose from different newspaper articles and decide which ones would be newsworthy and could be presented on the news.
Then they were taken to see the latest 3D technology being used at Sky television. Here they got to look at how the programme ‘Mystika’ creates all the 3D clips and shows.
Mattie Haines, 10 Grove, said ‘It was really interesting seeing how they create all the TV programmes, especially the news and the weather forecasts.’
The students came back saying it was a great trip and that they were intrigued to learn how television programmes are made.
