Students set to star in BBC's One Show
Thursday, 08 May 2014
Five students at Seevic College have been filmed for a feature to be broadcast on BBC's One Show on Friday 9 May.
Students Phillip Smy, Ben Meyer, Catherine Thornton, Zoe Burton and Jed Cartwright, all 19, were invited to eat at Wimpy's in Benfleet, to mark the chain's 60th anniversary.
The students were filmed tucking in to food before giving their opinions on camera to celebrity food critic Jay Raynor.
Phillip, who lives in Benfleet, said: “It was really interesting and enjoyable to see how a professional production is put together, and we were made to feel very welcome by the restaurant and the BBC’s production team.
"Watching myself back on national television is going to be a really surreal experience - I’m very excited to see it.”
Ben, who lives in Langdon Hills and previously attended The Mayflower School in Billericay, said: “It was a really fun experience, although I did get a little frustrated with the constant re-shoots of everything we did.
"I studied video production as part of my course at Seevic, so seeing how the professionals do it was a really beneficial experience. My family are more excited than me about seeing the film , as they’re interested to know what I’m like when I'm not at home!”
The feature will be aired during the Friday 9 May edition of BBC's One Show, broadcast from 7pm on BBC One.
Seevic College offers a range of A-Level and Vocational courses related to Media
The College's next Open Evening takes place on Thursday 3 July, 5.30 - 8pm.
