CBBC have informed us today 18th September that the Blue Peter episode that will include the filming done at the Ringing World National Youth Contest in July will now be shown on Thursday 22nd November at 5.30pm, not this Thursday as originally planned. [The planned broadcast date was later rescheduled to 10 January 2019.] Please let everyone know about the change so they don’t miss it!
Sussex Young Ringers will feature on the BBC’s Blue Peter programme on Thursday 10th January 2019 (17.30, CBBC channel). Filming took place during the Ringing World National Youth Contest in July, which the Sussex team won. Presenter Lindsey Russell was also filmed having a “learn the ropes” session the week before, with the SCACR and KCACR youth striking competition teams. The programme may contain a few surprises…!
The programme airs a few times in the week and is available for replay for a month afterwards. If the date changes for any reason we will be informed in advance and will let you know. Do encourage everyone you know to watch it! This is great publicity for ringing, and we hope it will inspire new young (and old!) ringers.
