Write your answers A, B, C or D in the corresponding numbered boxes provided. Last month I spent a day on work experience, behind the scenes at a TV station. I followed an item of breaking news from the time it happened, to the point when it appeared on the evening TV news. It was fascinating! After having a look at the studio, I was taken to the home news desk, where the duty editor told us that it’d been quiet up till then. Suddenly, the phone rang. It was breaking news: a river had broken its banks and a village was flooded. The editor told the caller to stay on the line, ‘We’ll get you live on air to tell us everything,’ he said. Then he spoke to a colleague: ‘Let’s get a reporter, crew and satellite truck up there straightaway.’ Everything started to happen very quickly. The correspondent for the TV news channel, who had travelled up to the village, explained what he and his crew had been doing: ‘We’ve been at the village for a while now, gathering material for the report. That means speaking to the local people about the disaster or about their lucky escapes and also getting information from the emergency services. Our camera crew has taken up the best position to film what’s happening and we’re now using the satellite truck to beam all the material we’ve filmed back to the TV news centre.’ The footage from the village had to be prepared in the cutting studio. As the producer explained, ‘reporting is all about telling a story and so it’s very important to illustrate the news story with graphics and images from the scene. We will also use images of previous floods from our archives to show that this is not an isolated incident. Putting the reports together can be tricky. We need to get our facts right and broadcast the most important information. The clock’s ticking and we’re the lead story on the evening news.’ I was fascinated to see different screens showing emergency press conferences, detailed weather forecasts and images of the affected area. I was told that, as back-up or as an alternative to the TV news report, there are also online news reports where people can find maps of the area and more in-depth information. Viewers are invited to send in their pictures and videos from the scene, which will be put up on the website. There are also on-the-hour, up-to-date news bulletins on the radio, and you can even receive texts directly to your mobile phone. In the production studio, the producer’s job involves working out where the story is going to appear in the next hour of news. He’s also responsible for writing an introduction to the story. ‘Once the scripting and editing process has been completed, the product is ready to go out,’ he told me. ‘The studio director will ensure that everything is perfect but I’ve got a good team here: the executive producer, who checks the content of the interview, and the text producer, who puts the ticker on the screen. That’s a continuous stream of news and breaking newsflashes.’ Finally, the newsreader was ready to go on air in the newsroom. She was facing the camera: ‘Hello and welcome. Flash floods have devastated a small village in Yorkshire. Heavy downpours have washed away roads and trapped people in their homes. Now let’s go across to our correspondent, Peter Nichols, Page 5 of 9 pages
  6. for a live update ’ We watched as the correspondent gave the live news report from the scene: ‘The floods hit without warning in the early hours, causing chaos and confusion. People’s homes have been destroyed, power lines are down and more rain is forecast for the evening. The emergency services are doing what they can but there are fears that the bridge over the river might collapse ’ 31. Which best serves as the title for the passage? A. Breaking the News! B. On the Tip of Your Tongue! C. Look Good, Feel Good! D. Storm in a Teacup! 32. What will the person who rang the TV news have to do? A. act as if nothing unusual has happened B. give an eyewitness account C. get connected to a computer D. phone for the police 33. What did the correspondent in the village do? A. receive reports B. try to rescue people C. film the disaster D. interview the local people 34. The word “footage” in the paragraph 3 is defined as ___. A. a place where old files, films and photos are stored B. a piece of film showing a particular event C. the most recent information about a news story D. a short television news report 35. Why will images from the archives be used? A. to make the pictures look three-dimensional B. to make it more interesting C. to supply evidence of other similar disasters D. to make the floods look more impressive 36. What is important when reporting the news? A. The news report has to give all the details. B. The news report has to be accurate. C. The news report always has to be the lead story. D. The newsreader has to be a story-teller. 37. What is meant by “the clock’s ticking” in paragraph 3? A. They have missed the evening news deadline. B. They have to work fast. C. The noise of the clock is annoying. D. The report is already late. 38. What are viewers invited to do in emergencies? A. take photos of the event B. send text messages to the people in need C. follow the latest weather report D. turn on their radios 39. What must the producer decide about the story? A. what position it will have in the news report B. if it will be ready for the next news flash C. what part of it needs further scripting or editing D. whether it needs an introduction 40. What do we learn about the situation in the village from the final news bulletin? A. Many road accidents have taken place. B. They have no electricity. C. The rain hasn’t stopped since the morning. D. The bridge has been washed away. Your answers: 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. Part 4. For questions 41-50, identify in which section A, B, C, or D each of the following is mentioned.

  7. being fully prepared? 47. ___ learning survival techniques? 48. ___ the benefits of experiencing nature? 49. ___ having to complete a series of tasks within a time limit? 50. ___ READY FOR A CHALLENGE A. Daniel I’m going to do the 24-hour ‘Three Peaks Challenge’. I will set out to climb the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in just twenty-four hours. I know it’s going to be really difficult but sometimes in life you need something to get your teeth into, don’t you? I’m doing the climb with two mates of mine. Their level of fitness is reasonably good, so hopefully they’ll stand the pace. I have doubts about one of them, Phil, but I just felt I couldn’t say ‘no’. I know how important safety is so I’ve packed all the right equipment. This time next week, we’ll be setting off on the challenge and driving nearly 700 kilometres in total, with no time for a rest. If we complete the task in the time stated, the money we raise will go to a local charity. Wish us luck! B. Poppy My friends laugh at me when I tell them I’m planning to go on a survival course because I love the conveniences of life. You see, I wanted to spend time without all my creature comforts, but I don’t know how I’m going to manage without my telly, my mobile and my soft pillow! We’ll be sleeping outdoors and I’ve always been terrified of all types of creepy-crawlies, but I’m not going to let that stop me! We’ll learn how to make tents out of sticks and pieces of canvas. By the end of the course, I’ll have learned how to find my way by the stars and not poison myself by eating the wrong plants. I won’t starve to death either since they’re going to teach us how to catch fish and light a campfire. It’s going to be a fantastic experience! C. Stella There are some kids who’ve never seen the countryside - can you believe that? They’ve spent all their lives in concrete jungles surrounded by ugliness. When my mum told me about ‘Adventure Day’ for these teenagers, I felt I had to take part. The point of the programme is to get the kids, who often have family or social problems, involved in an outdoor activity. When they’re trying to learn a new skill such as canoeing or caving, they can set goals and achieve them. The challenge for me will be to help them to become more self-confident. Exploring caves, for example, brings them into contact with places and forces that are not man-made but have been there for thousands of years. That’s something they’ll be able to take home with them. D. Mike I’m currently in training for a tough cycling challenge. Do you think you could cycle over 560 kilometres with only overnight stops? Well, that’s what I’m going to try and do! The idea came about not long ago while I was stuck in hospital. A friend had heard about this team of cyclists who were planning to cycle through Ireland. I’ve always enjoyed cycling so I decided that this would be something to aim for while I was recovering. I’m going to join the team for training sessions from now on and start increasing the distance slowly. I’ll do some uphill training too, in order to strengthen my muscles. Fortunately, I live in the country so I’ll be spending all my evenings and weekends from now getting fit. The trip starts in just under two months and I still need to raise funds for it, but I’m quite optimistic! Page 7 of 9 pages
