BBC RADIO 2

WORK EXPERIENCE

ABOUT THE ROLE

When my soon-to-be work experience supervisor called me in the summer of 2014 to say I'd have four weeks working at the UK's biggest radio station, I couldn't ever have anticipated what would be next.

I helped to prepare shows for one of the station's biggest events and OBs of the year: Live in Hyde Park. I helped collaborate production notes on the artists performing – and was part of the production teams producing live shows in between acts backstage, including Chris Evans' pre-ELO warm-up show.

I worked across the weekend shows, taking in and picking the brains of Huey Morgan's, Elaine Paige's, Liza Tarbuck's, Anneka Rice's, Graham Norton's and Terry Wogan's production teams. I took so many fond memories from shadowing all of the shows, especially the latter - to sit behind the glass wall of Sir Terry Wogan was an honour and something I will never forget.
