Its another Pebble Mill scenario. The actual studios are fine, purpose built and in nice surroundings. A refit would have sufficed but no there has to be another silly impractical office space with a few studios shoved in. A waste of money.
That's all well and good, but the building itself wasn't in great condition. Believe me, you wouldn't want to find yourself working in an office late at night with a storm raging outside, with the wind and rain rattling those old windows for all they were worth. It must have cost a bomb to heat the place too...energy efficient it certainly wasn't! That said, it will be missed by a lot of people who worked there.
You want to try Broadcasting House in Belfast. The windows are 80 years old, many can no longer be closed. I've witnessed it snowing in a corridor on more than one occasion.
Luckily it's Belfast next. It's the last big BBC centre to be refitted/relocated I think
