Students in media spotlight.

Students from Darlington went under the spotlight on a visit to the North-east's BBC studios.

Ten students from Darlington College of Technology's BTEC National Diploma Media Moving Image course took turns in the Newcastle news studio hotseat, usually occupied by presenter Carol Malia.

They also met and quizzed professional journalists working at BBC Broadcasting House on the recent trip.

College programme leader John Gibb said: "The tour was an excellent introduction to television.

"They had never been to a professional television studio before and were really impressed that 95pc of staff there were journalists.

"I think that this fact has encouraged many of the students to think about taking the journalism course at Darlington College once they have completed the BTEC."
