Goodbye Television Centre

Friday 22 March



Some of the biggest BBC stars of all time will gather for one last time to bid a fond farewell to TVC in Goodbye Television Centre, and celebrate 53 years of history behind the iconic building.

Former BBC Chairman Michael Grade will invite an exciting array of stars of TV and radio to assemble in front of a studio audience, where they will recount their favourite memories as they reminisce about the times they spent at the BBC’s flagship studios, giving us a personal insight into their experiences at TVC. Stars joining him on the sofa include Sir David Attenborough, Penelope Keith, Ronnie Corbett, Meera Syal, Sir Michael Parkinson, Sir Terry Wogan, Sir David Jason, Zoe Ball, Bob Harris, Rebecca Front, David Mitchell, Dara O Briain and Fiona Bruce.

Roving reporter Victoria Coren will take the viewers on an exciting tour of the BBC with other names, such as Barry Cryer and Brian Blessed, from the studios that housed Monty Python’s Parrot sketch, to Del Boy’s Living Room and Miranda’s shop.

The famed building has brought us decades of programming and has created treasured household names. Goodbye Television Centre will look at the nostalgic history created by the stars of the small screen, both on and off camera, since the 1960s. Comedy shows, talk shows, entertainment shows, children’s television, music and drama – they were all born from the famous Television Centre.

London’s TVC has been a hub of creativity from the moment it opened its doors on 29 June 1960, to the moment it will close them on 31 March 2013. So joins us to say, Goodbye Television Centre.
