Newsjack Recording – Series 8 Episode 5

156083_612439188771609_1176274895_nA few days ago I went to, yes, another radio recording. This time it was for Series 8, Episode 5 of BBC Radio 4 Extra program, Newsjack.

However there was one significant difference to this recording than the others I have been too, for it took place at the BBC Broadcasting House rather than the usual RADA Studios.

There are floors upon floors of offices with people updating the weather or editing the news footage. The place was nicly furbished (having had a multi-million pound 296507_612439325438262_1306766627_nrefurbishment a few years ago). It also has life-size models of both the TARDIS and a dalek, which were quite fun to pose for pictures in front of.

However being big a new, the broadcasting house had a slightly artificial tone and was definitely not as friendly as RADA. The women on reception’s forehead reflected the light above and she spoke with an American ac164396_612439332104928_776312710_ncent! You have no idea how much I hate American accents.

The show itself was excellent however two famialiar faces were missing; Host Justin Edwards and actress Pippa Evans. Some great jokes were cracked including the workings of the new Pope’s mind and a ‘Mind the Gap’ CD.

Me, and some friends, and a TARDIS
