This is a radio news package which I produced for Nerve News to broadcast live on Nerve Radio 87.9FM. I was covering an event where second year Fine Art students at the Arts University Bournemouth had redesigned the mini golf course down in the Bournemouth Lower Gardens.

As part of my radio unit I was asked to produce a 7 minute Radio Documentary on a topic of my choice, as long as it fitted in with the theme, ‘Features for Change’. I decided to focus my documentary on the Paralympic Sport Boccia.
The Paralympic games are a great showcase for disability sport. While they help to raise awareness, it is the challenge of setting up local community clubs to get more disabled people into sport which is an issue. I explored the Paralympic sport Boccia and one woman’s story on how she defied the odds to set up her own club.

On Tuesday the 8th of November 2016 myself and fellow Bournemouth University students covered the US Elections live on TV and Radio for 12 consecutive hours. I was part of the radio team as a deputy presenter/breaking news reporter. I’ve put together a montage of some of my time on air which you can listen to here:
For my radio news package this year I was required to produce an on the day story, which required me to go into university in the morning (28,10, 2016) read my brief and then to go out and produce a 1 minute 30 second radio package which had to be finished and submitted for assessment by 5:30 that evening.
I decided to travel to RSPB Arne nature reserve that morning, as my news story was going to be based on the fact that BBC Autumnwatch had been broadcasting live from the reserve that week. I wished to discuss how the week had gone for the team and to hear about their plans for when the BBC return to Dorset for Winterwatch. I arranged interviews with BBC Autumnwatch Engineering Manager Gareth Wildman and RSPB Arne’s Project Manager for Autumnwatch Sarah Webb. I had a nice day out looking round the reserve and chatting to the volunteers and subsequently put the package together in the afternoon. You can listen to my radio package by clicking the link below:
