Hi readers.

This week we want to tell you about being filmed. It all started when we met Jane, the Director of BBC Inside Out South. She wanted to talk to us about the Echo column to see if she could make a short film about it.

We were a bit nervous meeting her but she was really nice. We knew she was someone we’d like to work with and luckily for us, she liked us too, and it went from there.

In no time at all the day of filming arrived. We both had a nervous feeling in our tummy, worrying how we’d come across and if we’d be asked lots of difficult questions. Jane and Joe, the cameraman, were total professionals, making us feel at ease so that very soon we hardly noticed the cameras were even there.

First they filmed us catching the bus to a Friendship Club disco in Weymouth, and during the disco itself.

On the second day we took over the skating rink in Brewery Square to have our first taste at skating. It was funny seeing Joe the cameraman on ice trying to film William who was skating while holding onto a penguin!

The third day saw me, Adam, and my manager, Lindsay, filming at work.

It was a fantastic experience to be actually be in front of a camera, instead of always just watching other people on TV. We’re both a bit nervous about seeing ourselves on TV but also really excited.

It will be shown in February so look out for us on BBC Inside Out South. If you watch it, we’d love to hear what you think, and if it changes your attitude towards people with learning disabilities.

Finally, we’d like to thank everyone who helped put this together, especially Jane.

nAdam and William are supported in their editing by The Friendship Club– a project for adults with learning disabilities, run by People First Dorset.
