School Report: Relaying the Olympic message

The route of the Olympic Torch Relay is designed to travel within an hour of 95% of the UK's population, giving millions of people the chance to get involved.

School Reporters Hawa, Manisha and Raman from St John Wall Catholic School in Handsworth travelled to the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley to find out more about the torch's unusual journey - via tram and canal boat - through the area.

Their report, which was broadcast on BBC WM, also looked at whether the torch's trawl across the region will help bring the Olympics to life outside of London.

BBC News School Report is a project which gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.
