As it happened: CJS News’ final production day of the term

Good morning from JOMEC! It’s Friday the 26th of March and our last production day before the Easter break.

It’s a busy day as usual. We’ll be covering the lifting of some coronavirus restrictions in Wales, with the end of the stay local rule and the re-opening of self-catering accommodation.

We’ll also be covering how Wales still might win the Six Nations this weekend. We’re all Scotland fans for the time being…

And we’re also looking at the local stories affecting Cardiff as our reporters look at the re-opening of libraries and graffiti vandalism in Cathays.

You can follow all the updates on our social media channels @BroadcastCJS


That’s a wrap!

Well, that’s all from social media editors Cal and Bertie. It’s been another successful today putting together a great show of news. See you after Easter!


The all-important debrief

As the 1400 bulletin is rounded off nicely, there’s no time for rest. It’s all eyes ahead for the 1600 special.


Suited and booted

Ever wondered what goes into making a successful two-way? Here’s a sneak peek of Jacob doing just that.


Headlines at 1400

Here’s presenter Aliraza Manji telling us what we can expect to hear in just under ten minutes time.


Countdown to the 1400 bulletin

It’s all systems go in the newsroom as our reporters starting putting their packages together.


What’s occuring?

Poppy and Ross clearly picked the right moment to be beside the sea.


No rest for the wicked

One story isn’t enough for Will. Now the rain has cleared he’s looking into pubs, publicans and what their response might be to today’s news.


The woman at the helm

Behind every great program there’s a great producer, and here’s Zola in the studio nerve centre – the gallery.


Practice makes perfect

Ali’s having his first go in the studio as we prepare for our 2 pm bulletin. Looking very Huw Edwards-esque.


The joy of reading

Lowri is on location at Canton Library as they hope to re-open following the latest relaxation of restrictions. Social media editor Bertie still has his library card from when he was ten and can’t wait to give it another run out.


Hard at work or hardly working?

Social Editor Cal gets to grips with the world of TikTok. First, a bit of research on how it actually works.


Coat Twins

Reporters Ross and Poppy are have been taking fashion tips from each other. They’re heading to Barry Island to cover the end of the ‘Stay Local’ rules.


The magic begins

Our reporter Will has already filmed for his piece on vandalism in Cathays. He’s now putting his editing skills to work to put together something for our 2pm bulletin.


Prod Team in action

Our production team are hard at work planning the running order for our 2pm and 4 pm bulletins
