Communication and Media field trip to Media City BBC Studios

On Wednesday 20th February, undergraduate students and academic staff in Communication and Media went on an extracurricular field trip to the famous BBC Studios at Media City, Salford. The group, led by Professor Andrew Chadwick and Professor James Stanyer, enjoyed a behind-the-scenes look at one of the world’s largest media organisations. Highlights of the trip included participating in a news bulletin, the sport and entertainment studio, and a hands-on experience in the BBC Six Music production room. The field trip provided a unique opportunity for students to learn about how the BBC’s resources have enabled it to become a globally-important media organization whose influence extends far beyond the UK.
