BBC Norwich is the BBC regional TV and Radio broadcasting centre for the East of England.
This is a fantastic chance to gain access to the rarely seen world behind the scenes of the famous TV and radio programmes produced and broadcast from BBC Norwich at The Forum.
The tour includes a visit to the Look East TV studio and production gallery. BBC Radio Norfolk will be broadcasting live as you wander through the studios and the tour concludes with the chance of your very own hands-on interactive studio experience.
We will give you a real insight into a regional TV and Radio broadcasting centre operation. Please remember though that BBC Norwich is a working building and occasionally, we have to slightly restructure the content of the tour, depending on studio activity. No two tours are the same – but they will always be informative, interesting and fun.
Tours last up to an hour and a quarter and involve a moderate amount of walking.
