Twenty-two ITP members were recently treated to a behind the scenes look at the BBC and Salford University as part of our quarterly ‘Insight’ days.
The tour included backstage access to the BBC Breakfast studio, the BBC’s largest soundstage, one of the biggest studios in Europe (where The Voice is filmed), a sneak peek at future technology (OLED / drones etc), and a visit to the Radio 5 Live studio. Members heard how the site is managed, and how the telecoms systems are operated. The day ended with a visit to the University of Salford’s campus where they teach future BBC employees.
ITP CEO Adam Oliver said “It was fascinating to see how the BBC manages such a large and complex site, and to understand the role of telecoms within this vast organisation. I’m delighted to have been able to give our members this unique opportunity.”
