….And the News Channel will finish there at 1pm tomorrow.

It’s all the end of an era. The last day of the BBC operating the Television Centre in White City will be on 31st March. On 22nd March, BBC Four will mark the occasion with Madness performing live and a two hour programme of nostalgia called Goodbye TV Centre:
Former BBC Chairman Michael Grade will invite an exciting array of people from the worlds of sport, acting, journalism, music and entertainment to assemble in the BBC’s Studio One in front of a studio audience, where they will talk about their favourite Television Centre memories.
…Joining Michael Grade on the sofa will be a whole host of legendary faces:
Sir David Attenborough
Sir Michael Parkinson
Sir Terry Wogan
Sir David Jason
Dara O Briain
Sir Bruce Forsyth
