BBC Broadcasting House rebuild photos taken 19th February 2010

It will not be long before there will not be any exterior shots to take of this magnificent rebuild in Portland Place.  I have a great passion for this building having worked in it from 1973 to 2001 almost continuously.  Before this I marvelled at pictures in Who’s Who in Pop Radio – a 4 square paperback book which was published when the offshore stations were at their peak in the 1960s.  At the time I wondered why a building was featured in a book full of radio ships, and of course the Radio Luxembourg Studios on land!

Here then are shots taken on the 19th February.  The extension is almost completely built, and is absolutely massive.  Windows and other things are being fitted, and a few years of fitting out inside will eventually begin.  The External Services and many other BBC Newsrooms will move into it in 2012 or thereabouts……………………..
