Broadcasting for more than 20 years from Norfolk Tower in Norwich, in the summer of 2003 BBC Radio Norfolk moved to The Forum in the heart of Norwich.

The BBC Radio Norfolk studio is often dressed up for special events.

We've already had an Abba Day with disco mirror ball, a Valentine's Love Nest and on one occassion a beach scene including golden rays of light, water effects and real sand!

Keep visiting the webcam to see your favourite presenters joining in with the studio-cam fun.

Managing Editor David Clayton said: "It was a wrench to leave such a familiar building with so many memories, but we now have the very best radio studios in the country."

Tim Bishop, the Head of Regional and Local Programmes for the BBC in Norwich said:

"Moving to The Forum takes us right to the heart of Norwich and makes the BBC much more accessible to the licence-fee paying public.

"We’re looking forward to making lots of use of the public spaces at The Forum for big events and live broadcasts.

"I think people will enjoy the novelty of seeing their favourite TV and radio presenters working behind the scenes through the big glass windows," he added.

Take a seat in the new radio studio

BBC Radio Norfolk took to the air in September 1980 and was the first in a new wave of BBC Local Radio stations established to serve whole counties rather than city centres.

Despite only broadcasting for part of the day in the early years, BBC Radio Norfolk soon established itself as one of the top BBC Local Radio stations in the country - a position it has maintained.

In those pioneering days the station was only on air for a few hours each day, providing a breakfast programme and news bulletins while using BBC Radio 2 as a sustaining service.

In the mid-eighties the "Norfolk Airline" was one of the key programmes which helped spearhead Radio Norfolk's foray into all-day broadcasting.

For many years BBC Radio Norfolk was identified by its distinctive logo featuring the outline of the Norfolk Wherry.

The Broads trading vessel was unique for its unstayed mast and loose footed single sail which traced its origins back to Roman times.

If you live in Norfolk you can listen to the station on 95.1 & 104.4FM.

You can also catch up with the days news each afternoon between 5-6pm GMT by listening to our live audio stream.
