    Hey Kieran, 

    Definitely interested in the Sky News work experience and was curious with regards to how it works. Noticed in the application it mentioned you choose one of four or five sections (radio, programming, etc).  Do you get experience in all of them over the three weeks?  Also where is it you live for the three weeks? I noticed it said Osterley so I take it you have to move to the area for the time you're there?

    As someone who successfully applied for a place on this scheme last year and is now working for Sky News, I would strongly recommend applying for this. There are so many opportunities at Sky for young journalists, and you will get a fantastic insight into the running of not just TV news, but radio, online and digital too.

    If anyone needs help with their application or wants some insider knowledge, I am more than happy to share my experiences with you :)

    I'm going to add famous to the list, too. If you need to say it, they're not famous...

    Currently. Can you find a sentence in which its usage is essential?

    I vote for option two. The white background looks the most professional :)
