BBC School Report @ Fringe - 21st August 2013    
A contingent of Madras pupils and staff travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe to participate in the BBC School Report Project. The pupils were given the opportunity to record and film interviews with award winning comedians Aisling Bea and Tim Fitzhigham and actor Andrew Agnew, best known for his role as PC Plum in the BBC television series Balamory. After that, they took to the streets to quiz festival goers about what they found funny. After a hurried lunch, it was back to the studio for the editing process, assisted by the expertise of BBC staff. The finished products will be available on the BBC School Report Website shortly.
