You will. But they are still building out the back of that part. Site security man stopping non construction personnel from accessing it.

There's a passageway shaped hole punched wall from the courtyard to where the scene dock road was which will be the way through.
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

Meanwhile on Channel 4 tonight is BBC Studios first external commission - Fatberg Autopsy

So that's BBC Studios making a programme for Channel 4 while ITV Studios make programmes at the former BBC Studios. Try going back 30 years and explain that to someone

Channel 5 has already commissioned three shows from BBC Studios, Discovery and PBS have commissioned shows as well. I wonder if ITV will commission anything. Most of the commissions are factual but I wonder if we'll see any dramas or comedies made by BBC Studios for one of the commercial channels.

It's likely, if just depends on the sort of formats that they come up with. The big advantage is that they can sell programme ideas that supposedly aren't suitable for the BBC to channels more suited.

Fatberg Autopsy doesn't really seem like a BBC2 programme but sits well on Channel 4.

Whether they'll come up with something with an ITV mindset we'll see

On a related note I was watching French & Saunders series 1 last night on Netflix with my girlfriend. Episode 5 might be of interest to some as it features quite a bit of the old TV Centre.

The pair initially driving outside TVC were 'stopped' at the gate by a commissionaire, so 'climb' over the BP garden wall. When they get to their studio they find the doors chained, so they use to 'Blue Peter' studio next to theirs. There are also shots of the edge of the studio and what I assume is/was the gallery for that studio. (If I recall episode 4 featured a bit by the 'Helios' status, and also a cameo from Michael Grade.)

Slightly off-topic, but BBC building related. A nice little clip from Pebble Mill:




Thanks for that, towards the end of that, Les Ross on BBC Radio Birmingham with a Breakfast zoo show about 25 years before anybody else thought of the idea. As midlanders will know, Ross later became an iconic breakfast presenter for over 20 years on BRMB Radio

Technically Les Ross didn't do 20 years on BRMB, not continuously anyway. He did IIRC about 14 years then moved to one of the company's sister stations for a few years and then came back to BRMB for another nine years or so before spending the next fifteen years hopping around the various radio networks in the area.
