I'm thinking of having a get together, what do you think? (January 2017)

Well by all accounts the BBC Manchester tour is similar, but you get a look at some of the Dock10 studios too, and depending on the day/time the Breakfast set so it might be woth a go.

When are people wanting to do this, early summer, mid summer, later summer? Outside of kid holiday times would be ideal as it would hopefully make for a better day anyway but I suspect some of us have kids of our own now.

Just a heads up to anyone who hasn't been on the MediaCity tour before - it's appalling in comparison to TVC. You are taken into the Match of the Day studio (if it's empty) and you can see the desk. From there you see a room used for radio dramas and a soundproof room. If a radio studio is empty you can see inside there. You're then taken to the Blue Peter studio - it's permanently set up and the only real studio you're guaranteed to see. From here they take you all the way across to Quay House to see an embarrassing mock up of the BBC Breakfast set. It's a shame there wasn't something better. But that's just my opinion.

Irregardless enjoy your day - a meet up isn't my cuppa tea but hope it's a good'n. Oh and I highly recommend the Dockyard at MediaCity for food and drink. It's lovellllly!

I'm not entirely sure what else you want to see on a tour of a broadcasting centre... that sounds quite reasonable for a tour of a relatively new development with little history and no real architectural charm.

Oh, well, myself and Mrs Markymark had a selfie taken of us sat at that mock up (Mrs MM also looks a bit like Louise Minchin, so double bonus eh ? ) It was good enough to fool my mother in law. We had also sat on the real set, but no photos allowed. (I was there in my professional capacity, as said you don't get to see that studio on the public tour)

That doesn't sound too bad. You get much less at NBH.
