rays of light, water effects and real sand!

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
"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.

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.
