Photos from my Friday trip to BBC Broadcasting House

On Friday, I went uptown to see John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme being recorded at BBC Broadcasting House. I thought y'all might like to see some photos from the experience. This is old Broadcasting House:

Next to it is the new building, completed in the past couple of years:

Want to know what you can see inside? I'll give you a clue: cough, cough, Doctor Who, cough, cough. 

Follow me after the jump if you've managed to crack the code and are interested…

There's a cafeteria opposite the radio hall in which you have to wait until the show is about to be recorded. Here's what's at its entrance:


And inside?

And as if that weren't exciting enough, you can even watch the journos of BBC News hard at work:

And as for the radio hall itself…

Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the rather lovely faux-Grecian marbles on the walls. Sorry, but I was a bit naughty to be taking any pictures in the hall…

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
