has anyone done one? specifically radio.
he had done one and ended up with a job on the world service as a result.
I was severely unmotivated at the time however and the application form was LONG.
And we take on interns. Can provide details if required.
it's just the resident Tory troll. He's trying to make some kind of point about how people've criticised the Conservatives/rich over internships.
you're facilitating some kind of middle class, jumped up indie prick, fast track to a juicy internship.
And then worked freelance for the same section up until 2 years ago.
It was based in the World Service (BBC English).
It was radio and web based material.
Really enjoyed it and provided lots of opportunities, most of which I never followed up on.
or did you actually do research and write material etc?
Mainly production and research.
Each program was deployed via radio, web and tv. So I workd in radio production and scripting and I also designed games and quizzes for the website.
When I went freelance I basically was paid for making online quizzes and games for BBC Online and BBC English.
and at the time I was doing a degree in Arabic so they tried to find me a place in BBC world Service but BBC Egnlihs were short of people with web coding skills with a humanities background so they shoved me there.
So I guess I was a glorified programmer but with added production duties
I just filled in something a while before they phoned me and maytched my skills to BBc English
Done them at BBC TV and Radio.
Last summer I had a few placements. Managed to get one at LFC TV and thought it'd be the best thing in the world, while I wasn't really looking too forward to BBC Radio.
Turned out the opposite. Was out every day with the radio, Prem & Champo press conferences, match reporting. My work went out on air. Liverpool had me 'researching' facts about Houllier and stuff.
I had a telephone interview with 6music yesterday, but probably wont get it etc. whereabouts where you based?
Some girl I know from Uni is doing hers there over summer I think. And my mate who works for Radio 4 did a month at 6music and said it was the most fun she's had in her 12 or so years at the Beeb. Fingers crossed you get it.
I worked in Manchester. Best thing about BBC placements is they know how to treat interns.
Media degrees etc?
they pay you for a start
I don't think they want me though :'(
