  Newsround Online
Updated 18 October 2001, 16.48
Newsround Online team
Check out our picture galleries to see photos of what happens - the links are on the right of the photo.

6.30am
The first journalists start work, and check what's happened overnight to make sure CBBC Newsround Online is up to date.

They look at 'news wires' and newspapers so you don't miss any stories from around the world.

They also make a list of stories that will need to be reported later in the day.

8.00am
More members of the team start. There's a short meeting to talk about stories that are 'live' and what others we need to write.

People are busy adding in new pictures and putting up comments. We read every email we get!

11.00am
Everyone meets up to see how things are going - and to talk about anything else that's happening.

When everyone's here, there are 14 people in the online team.

3.00pm
We make sure there are fresh quizzes, votes and picture galleries about the day's stories on the site ready when everyone gets home from school.

4.30pm
Home-time at last for the journalist who started at 6.30am - though sometimes important news means they have to stay later.

This is probably the busiest time because there are so many of you logged on!

7.00pm
People on the late shift keep checking wires to make sure all the latest stories are on the site as soon as they happen.

10.00pm
Time for the final member of the team to go home! Again, if a story's too important to leave until the morning, we stay late to get it finished.

Then it all starts again the next day!
