BBC News and Sport on Tour 2006
A visitor gets some advice on camera operating
BBC staff will share their experience and knowledge
BBC News and Sport on Tour is taking place at events around the UK this summer.

We are on the road with our interactive marquee to give you a behind-the-scenes look at BBC News, Sport and Weather.

This is your chance to have a go at reading the news on television or radio in our special studios. You can also try at some of the technical roles involved in getting programmes on air and check out some of the interactive services the BBC has to offer.

Top presenters

Some of the BBC's top national and regional TV and radio presenters - including Natasha Kaplinsky, Dermot Murnaghan, Hazel Irvine and John Inverdale and top sports personalities such as Steve Davis and Steve Cram - will also be there to give you tips and advice.

So if you are at one of the events we are visiting, drop by for your chance to:

  • have a go at reading the news and sport on television or radio
  • present a weather bulletin
  • be a sound or vision mixer or operate a camera or autocue
  • check out some of the latest interactive services and gadgets
  • create a website story about yourself
  • have a go at some sports commentary, with a BBC commentator to help you
  • try out the Sport Academy's World Cup and Squad Selector online applications
  • tell us about news stories you think we should cover
  • test your news and sport knowledge with our special quizzes
  • take a tour of the BBC News, Sport, Weather and Newsround websites
  • meet BBC staff and ask us questions about what we do
  • find out more about the BBC and its history
