  9. BBC: Tales of Television Centre

    Cut to 1:42

    Really interesting (I think, at least) documentary about the historic BBC Television Centre, where programs including Monty Python and the old Doctor Whos were made. Actors and technical staff are interviewed in this, and each one has a different interesting story to tell about their time in Television Centre. They make really good use of old historic footage and archived television programmes as well.

    The good ol’ days of Television Centre are no more, sadly. The Beeb has put the building up for sale, and they have stated that they will be ending all BBC production in the building, by (they hope) the end of 2013, and to have the building vacant by 2015.

    Luckily the building will not be demolished, as parts of Television Centre are now a Grade II listed building, but it will still be sad to know that it will never be like it was again.  (And I say that as someone who has wanted to work in television since I was little.)

    At the end of the program, actress Penelope Keith says “It was an iconic building on it’s own, with the cars in the middle, all that’s changed, and certainly the inside has changed, radically. And, um, it seems awfully corporate to me now.”

    She hit the nail on the head there.

    (Also, it seems the historic Granada Television Studios are facing a similar fate.)
