10am: 31/10/2003
I start the tour of TVC. We start by going down past the NewsNight gathering area to the meeting room,across from the BBC News Room. We see the short film about news gathering.
Then we go and see the Blue Peter garden, and the presenters were all rehersing for the live show at 5.
Then we go to one of the main studios. Dick adn Dom in da Bungalow set was ready and waiting for them to reherse. We also seen the weather center and numerous other things.
On the way to White City Underground station, there they were. Dick and Dom. I nealy died. I got their autographs twice adn 2 fotos with them.

That was my day at TVC!!

I'm surprised they did that - they don't normally like being recognised.

Did you actually go into the Dick and Dom studio, or did you just look down on it from the viewing gallery. Out of interest, which studio was it in? When I went, we wern't allowed to go into the studios, as most of them were empty, apart from TC5, which had the Jonny Vaugne set in, and TC3, which had the National Lottery being built. TC1 was having the lights put in.

Well whenever I see them, they're always wearing caps with their heads down.

A very good friend of mine is also a personal friend of them both.

Don't think Johnny Vaughan will have been in TC5 (unless I'm very wrong) - that has a very permanent two storey Grandstand/Final Score set in it (very large bits of metal) - and no viewing gallery. They do make other shows in TC5 - but they have to use the main structure of the set installed in there. (Real Story has been shot in there, and it was used for Working Lunch when the White City bomb went off. It was also used for The Abyss Live yesterday)

The set in TC5 is only likely to be struck when they replace it.

Suspect it was more likely Vaughan will have been in TC4 or TC8?

How nice of you to mention. Nothing wrong with a little name-dropping... Rolling Eyes

Some-one asked me a question, I answered honestly.

Why should I be persecuted for that? Rolling Eyes

I didn't mention it in my original post for fear of an(other) onslaught...

Anyway, back on topic, please.
