A Day in the Life: Radio Producer, BBC
0930 The first thing I do is check my emails. The project I am working on at the moment involves working with 120 schools, so there will be enquiries from teachers that need urgent attention. I am also linking up teachers with BBC members of staff. .
1030 We usually have a project meeting in the morning. These are usually quite long because there is a lot to cover from school output to the website. .
1200 I take half an hour for lunch. .
1230 I check emails again and deal with enquiries that have come in during the morning. Most of then involve basic enquiries but some of it can be about problem solving as I am the main point of contact between the BBC and teachers involved in the project. .
1400 I work with the web person in the afternoon getting copy together for the site and putting it into web pages. Sometimes I will go and visit a school at this time. It varies every day. .
1600 I edit down interviews done with teachers and school children that have been recorded for downloading onto the web page. .
1830 I usually work late and rarely get home before seven but I enjoy the work and the variety it offers. .
