As you may have heard the BBC centre at white city is closing and is to be sold- probably for luxury flats. I had a quick wander around one evening after watching filming of the last sitcom before it shut. The television Centre has a large place in the collective conciousness of Britons of a certain age, those of us who grew up before the internet I suppose. This is the home of the original Blue Peter Garden and the place where Top of the Pops was filmed. To me it represents the days when the BBC was really a proud institution, or at least when the world was a little more innocent .
The show I saw being filmed is ‘Up The Women’ by Jessica Hynes which stars Rebecca Front among others and should be on tv soon- well worth a watch from what I saw, made me feel like my TV license was being used wisely for a change.
