Episode Info:

In this episode of The Z-X Spectrum, we chat with BBC show Blue Peter presenter, Richie Driss. Having only joined the show this year (2019), we explore how Richie came to have the job of presenting on the world’s longest-running children’s TV show - 60 years and counting - and dive into the role TV has in young people’s lives today.

It’s a challenging media landscape for any broadcaster - both here in UK and globally -  so how is Blue Peter engaging young people and why does this flagship show mean so much to generations of people? 

We also touch on what being a role model means to Richie - and where his passion for content creation and presenting came from in the first place.

Just a note on the quality of the recording: We had a few technical issues with our equipment which meant we had to record directly from the laptop and not mics. But it doesn’t detract from the topics we cover. So hope you enjoy!
