News Cast

Submit your video news stories for inclusion in our regular news cast. We want to hear stories about what you've been up to during lock-down that other young people want to hear about.

Here's some ideas of themes to get you started:

  • Review a book, game, film or TV show
  • Staying active
  • Learning a new skill
  • Cooking something awesome
  • Staying in touch
  • Helping others
  • Introduce a pet
  • Tell us about nature local to you

Some tips...

  • Please have a read of the 'just to check' section below before you start filming. Sadly we can't use any video's that don't meet these house rules.
  • You may find it useful to script or storyboard your video before filming. Consider asking family members to help film or using a solid surface / selfie stick or tripod to reduce camera shake.
  • Videos must be 5mins or less in .mov or .mp4 format - this is usually the default for most phones and cameras. Shorter videos of 30-90 seconds work best and should ideally be filmed in landscape (as you would watch on TV). The maximum file size is 300mb.

We can't guarantee we will feature all videos submitted.
