The day is focused around a demi-Crimewatch production, in which they appealed for the public to assist in solving some of Brighton's biggest cases. Participants rotate through the different roles throughout the day, which allows the to get a taste of being floor managers, directors, and television presenters.
The participants grow in confidence throughout the process, and some initial nervousness at appearing on a television screen fades. As well as the technical skills they learn, communication is a vital part of the day to be able to make a final recordings. Additionally, the Vision-Mixer, Audio-Mixing consoles and Digital Video Effects are all demonstrated in the PCR (Production Control Room), to give the participants a full taste of a professional and learning environment.
Schools that have taken part in the project include: Longhill High School and Rye College, Patcham High, Eastbourne Academy and Shoreham Academy.
