1xtra U Takeover

September 24, 2009

if you didn’t already know, 22 young people are going to be taking over BBC 1xtra this Saturday!!

Those taking over are not in full time eduction, employment or training and the U Takeover project has been introduced to help broaden their career opportunities. The youths have had a three month training scheme leading up to the takeover on Saturday.

At the end of their training their task is to build and produce radio and online content for broadcast, including a pre-recorded live music event at the BBC’s famous Maida Vale studios.

Great experience for people trying to get into the business, i think. Especially with the difficulties the current situation has brought!
