Many of you, may have never even have heard of Television Centre. It’s been the headquarters of BBC Television. Officially opened on 29 June 1960, it is one of the most readily recognisable facilities of its type having appeared as the backdrop for many BBC programmes.
So myself, like many others in the UK have growing up watching TV shows from Television Centre. Including Blue Peter, Children in Need, CBBC from ‘the Broom Cupboard’ and many others.
