Last Night we took the troop to see the making of Calendar News. The very nice people at ITV let us sit in a room looking onto the gallery where the programme was being controlled and put together, and then afterwards we went into the studio, and briefly met the presenters.
During the programme going out, we could watch and hear the production team talking to each other, the studio, and the reporters doing outside broadcasts. Just a few stories took up most of the programme (one lasted 15 minutes of the 30 minutes) but with bits from the presenters, outside reporters, and packages made earlier, I figure we still got to see all the action.
I thought it was rather cool, but then I am like that. The scouts didn’t exactly look bored, and seemed chuffed with the autographs they got!
