The News Centre will also be kept 'warm' for three months, just in case of any major problems at BH. Other non-news departments haven't quite moved out yet.
Three months? Will there still be back-up presenters on stand-by, or they will just use TVC in case of a serious trouble (e.g.: meltdown, power failure)?


Meltdown, I think. Or in case Emily Maitlis remembers she's left a stash of pick-n-mix in her locker and needs to go back, that sort of thing. There'll still be some kit running in the building that'll take a bit longer to migrate.

Do you think they can leave Lizo Mzimba at TVC?

N24's final simulcast with BBC2 from TVC has just ended. Not much fanfare there which is all good, unless you're watching from the fringes of the UK (e.g. IE, BE, NL, extreme northern FR).

One of the pieces from Television Centre this morning with Lizo Mzimba. I'll post the rest very soon.

Esther Rantzen comes across as a bit bonkers in that interview. They seemed to stop asking her questions after a while, just letting her ramble on and on!


Simon was quite pleased that she said he wasn't born in 1966, though. Smile

He's just said, "She's still down there, reminiscing!"
