Excellent new home of the BBC. Once isolated as the anchor development it is now the Hub of a busy new commercial centre. Futurist meeting pods. Studios with great views of the quays. S world away from oxford road studios.

It was really interesting to go round the different buildings, see inside the studios, etc. We got to make a 10-minute radio play, or have a go at presenting the weather. Interesting to see how small the studios are, compared with how big they look...More
