Not been mentioned on the News channel or the BBC website though. Have they got some sort of black out going on about the story?

Surely it can't be too difficult to point a camera out of one of the windows or use the skyline camera at Langham Place pointing at All Souls Church? Laughing Wink


When something happens the first time, it’s the top story, when it happens a few times, it’s news in brief. When a protestor has glued themselves yet again to the 50th public building, it doesnt even make the bulletin.

Patrick Kielty warned about the potential disturbance outside the studios at the start of tonights One Show.

Indeed they've covered up the windows in the studio with blinds.


'Warn' is not the word I'd have used to describe it, he merely acknowledged the noise from the protest, and that's all

Yes and he didn't even explicitly mention the protests at all. Merely that there might be some background noise.

Still a very large crowd outside NBH . The One Show studio lights are on with the blinds down.


What kind of amateurs are these dipsticks? Surely they could have at least managed to get inside and chain themselves to the desk of the BBC's 10 o'clock news tonight. Not sure who could have jumped on them to keep them quiet while Reeta carried on however!

They deserve derision. Most people I know are laughing at them. They are not winning many hearts and minds.

They did a protest at 30 Rock at the ice rink where they staged a die in and unfurled a banner across from the Prometheus statue. However it appears they didn’t block access the the building. The only thing disturbed were likely people wanting to ice skate.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

And isn't the plaza, and walk through from Portland Place, under the 'arch' to the right of The One Show Studio, and entrance to the Peel Wing, and out over towards Wogan House, a public right of way?

Hence, unless the BBC got an emergency court order from Westminster Magistrates Court to ban public access (and therefore throttle the protesters) there was nothing the BBC, and the third party security staff could do.

I was down there last Saturday afternoon, and there was a protest of some sort facing BH from the steps of All Saints Church - if a boombox playing Arabic music, a large flag and a couple of banners, counts as a demonstration protest - and apart from the occasional glance by a BBC security man, all seemed happy with the protest.
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

Possibly, before the new BH was built it was a road - the western end of Langham Street
