School Report: Behind the scenes - literally - at the Royal Opera House

With the Cultural Olympiad an integral part of London 2012, School Reporters from The Grays School Media Arts College in Essex were keen to find out what it takes to create spectacular backdrops that are fit for the Royal Opera House.

Students went behind the scenes at the prop and production warehouse which is based close to their school - and made a little piece of history by becoming the first reporters to film there!

School Report is an annual BBC project which helps young people make their own news reports for a real audience.
