BBC Newcastle Tours offer visitors a unique opportunity to step behind the scenes of our television and radio world.
"The cameras are set for action, the news stories are being prepared and as the clocks count down, you can step into the shoes of a director or try out the presenter's chair. Scheduled carefully between our live television broadcasts, you are welcome to come in and have a good look around. Why do some newsreaders only wear one shoe? Why does the weather forecaster have an earpiece in their left ear, while news presenters have one in their right? In radio why do some programmes have a ""driver""? And what is the RATS alarm? After one of our tours, you might just know the answers!"
