Here at ITV Channel TV, we opened our newsroom to 12 students today (Thursday) to show them what life is like on the other side of the camera.

The Open Newsroom Day is an opportunity to show young people what goes into the making of a news programme, from presenting the weather to operating a camera.

After a quick introduction, our weather presenter Sophia Bird showed students from Les Quennevais, Le Rocquier and Haute Vallee how to use a green screen.
