Lis Jolley, Principal of Digitech Studio School, was the first guest when BBC Radio Bristol broadcast live from the school on October 19, talking about the nature and role of a studio school. The show also included the usual BBC breakfast show features, such as news, sports and weather. 

Digitech has its own radio station, Phoenix Radio, run entirely by a team of students, who acted as runners for the BBC Show.  

BBC Producer Nicki Ledgard worked closely with the Cabot Learning Federation Communications Manager, Dean Blake, to produce and arrange content for the show. Dean said the event was “an amazing opportunity for Digitech Studio School and the Cabot Learning Federation. To be able to showcase our work to Bristol and the surrounding areas on such a brilliant platform is incredible and I would like to thank BBC Radio Bristol for allowing us this opportunity. It was also a chance for our presenters and producers to work alongside experienced professionals and my hope is it will inspire them to consider a career in broadcasting in the future.”
