I have been reading about the possibility of BBC broadcasting house to be moved from its current location. https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/bbc-bristol-whiteladies-road-broadcasting-3795941


It's a bit of a sprawly jumble of a site. Never been to the Pints West/Radio Bristol bit, but at some point or other they will probably end up in a tiny glass box in some faux-trendy city centre area at 2000% of the current rental charges, and the network production part moved somewhere else (in the UK)

They’ve been talking about moving from Whiteladies Road on and off for years. Given than more jobs have moved to Bristol in recent years they do need the space and I expect there’s little room in the site as it is. It would require a BBC Cardiff style relocation to move everything that’s currently in Bristol. Not impossible of course and the BBC may well consider it at some point but I suspect it’s low on the agenda at the moment.

Yes talking about the move for close on 40 years in my experience ...
but it makes sense for BBCStudios to move its production staff to a neater site
As more PSB staff move into Whiteladies Road ...... paint factory anyone ???
