    Event starts at 5.00pm

  • Location

    City University London, St John Street EC1

The Media Society, in association with BBC News, invites you to an evening of insight into the way programmes are made and who makes them. 

Join us for the live broadcast of the BBC Six O’Clock News, a discussion with the Editor Presenter and Director of that night's programme followed by a panel discussion from leading broadcast journalists across television, radio and online – both from the BBC and other commercial channels.

The event is especially designed for journalism students who should bring their Student ID cards plus their Passport or a Driving Licence with them on the night.

Those attending will be taken up in groups to the 7th Floor Learning Zone, stopping on the way for a brief explanation of what goes on in the Newsroom.

£7.50 student entrance includes one year’s free student membership of The Media Society, giving greatly reduced entry to an array of events and talks over the coming year. Please note that free membership only applies to students. (See The Media Society website for a list of forthcoming events). 

All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to The Media Society. The BBC and other partners are kindly donating their services free of charge.

Security Arrangements on arrival
It is important that each ticket holder is named, so that individual security passes can be issued. Students need to bring their student ID and their passport or driving licence; non students need to bring their passport or driving licence with them in order to pass through security on arrival at BBC Broadcasting House.

Please note that in order for security badges to be issued on arrival, all booking details for attendees will be disclosed to the BBC. Personal details on the booking form have been kept to a minimum to require the name of each attendee and a contact e-mail address. In addition a mobile phone number and an office phone number (if any) have been asked for in the event of any query arising or the need to contact an attendee urgently.

All attendees have to go through security, have their bags checked and be issued with a BBC identity lanyard before they can leave reception and enter the building. Please arrive in time to complete this procedure.
