LITTLEPORT guides took over the airwaves on
Friday hosting their own programme on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
Six members of the Third Littleport Guides were invited to the station's Cambridge headquarters on Thursday to find out how to operate the equipment, carry out research and present a programme with staff at Sue Dougan's afternoon show.
The group of 13-year-olds then took over the show, with Kristina producing the programme while Laura and Lydia presented. Bethany and Amy carried out a report at The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and roving reporter Sophie interviewed members of the public about conserving water. The experience was recorded by Aimee, whose report is available on-line at www.bbc.co.uk/cambridgeshire.
