Today is Ada Lovelace Day.

In the Broadcast Centre there is a meeting room named after Ada Lovelace in tribute to her pioneering work on computer programming.

Today there was a special lunchtime presentation in that room where BBC staff heard about key engineering and technology projects lead by women at the BBC.
