I only worked at Television Centre occasionally. I frequently got lost… It was circular so if you kept walking you ended up back where you started. Weird! You ran into all sorts of people. I remember going up to work with Ken Morse. The food in the canteen was to die for.. I’m kidding.
But it was the most wonderful place. …and I believe that in the future the sale will be seen as terrible mistake.
It was a magical factory of creativity despite the design. As Alan White says …
“Everything about the building is stupid, and no doubt commentators who love to lay into the institution would see much that’s telling (on this subject, I always feel those who moan about left-wing bias have never worked here, where everything is chaotic, last minute – the very notion the corporation is organised enough to insert systematic prejudice into its reports is hard to swallow).”
