It’s been a busy half term here at the BCB Studios.We’ve been working with students from the Bradford Citizens to make radio programmes about the issues that matter to them. The team from Belle Vue Girls recorded a special program looking at Racism, and later used the interviewing skills they’d learned to record with Piers Telemacque from the Race Equality Network (REN). Another team recorded a program focusing on Mental Health Awareness Week, highlighting the importance of Positive Mental Health.

The team at Rainbow Primary Leadership Academy have been recording special programs for National Share a Story Month this May. They interviewed Imran Hafeez from Bradford Literacy Trust about the importance of Reading, and recorded on location at the school library.Talking of Share a story Month what better time to broadcast the work we’ve been doing with Word Up North! A series of programs has been broadcast as part of the project, featuring students from Holy Family School in Keighley, Carlton Keighley and Oakbank School. The students worked with storyteller Irene Lofthouse to work on telling their own stories surrounding the issues that they are passionate about. You can listen back to the shows via the BCB Xtra section on our Listen Again page on the BCB Website.

Next half term we’re looking forward to continuing our work on the Lost Mills Project with 509 Arts, working with pupils from St James Academy, Beckfoot Heaton and Rainbow Primary.
