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:

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:

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…
