over the day we have been collecting information about the ship and history in the historic dockyards.
We found out the HMS Warrior has a sister called HMS Black Prince. We also found out that Warrior conducted a publicity tour of Great Britain in 1863 and spent her active carer with the channel squadron. On top of that, she built in 1859 and finished in 1861. She was built for the Royal Navy to help win the Napoleonic war. Another ship we collected information for was HMS Victory. She was a 104 gun fist-rate ship for a front line space with the Royal Navy. It was the year of 1922 when she was moved to a dry dock at Portsmouth/England. The dock is better known as the Historic Dockyard she is being preserved as a museum ship. She is also the oldest ship still in commission. We also interviewed the chief executive officer of the Historic Dockyard, Lincoln Clark.
Two of our BBC School Reporters were lucky enough to be invited to the BBC South Today news studio at Gunwharf this morning.
Alex and Amber were interviewed live on the morning show by Julian Clegg. This is what they said about the experience:
“I felt nervous and confused thinking about what to say! It was exciting and a totally different experience to what I would normally do. My first time in a radio interview!” said Amber.
“I felt nervous at first but then gradually overcame this. It was nice being in a real studio and getting a feel for what being a presenter really feels like. It has helped me to rethink what I might do in future and I am interested in journalism.” said Alex.
Ms Debens was really impressed with the girls and said “they handled the pressure really well. It’s quite a difficult situation to know when to talk and who to listen to so they explained themselves brilliantly”
The report can be heard on the Radio Solent website later today.
