Here's a warm welcome to my TV Places Page
I like visiting the sites of TV stations and Studios both past and present, and this page features the ones I've been to.
Here is a large selection of photos from some of the TV Places I have been to. You can see a list of all the TV Places I've been to below, and you can see all my photos of them by going to.........
BBC TELEVISION CENTRE
transmitted from the BBC antenna in Brookmans Park. . Regularly scheduled electronically scanned television began from Alexandra Palace in London on 2nd November 1936. The outbreak of World War II resulted in the
service being suspended in September 1939, being resumed in 1946.
On Friday 1st April 1949, with transmissions still coming from Alexandra Palace, Controller of the BBC Television
Service, Norman Collins, announced that a new TV centre was going to be built in Shepherd's Bush.
possible new television studio complex had been proposed several years earlier.
Many programmes having moved to the Media Centre in Salford (above left), the radio and television news departments moving to a new building, linked to Broadcasting House in Portland Place, London (above right), the traditional home of BBC Radio.
Madness will perform however, live in the front of BBC Television Centre as part of an evening of entertainment bidding farewell to the iconic building. Celebrating its 53 year history, BBC Four will produce the hour-long programme, to be shown on 22nd March, nine days before Television Centre finally closes its doors.
An era of broadcasting in the UK will be over.
