History

The former BBC Television Centre opened on 29th June 1960, as the BBC's first purpose-built centre for television production. It is located four miles outside central London on Wood Lane, Shepherd's Bush.

The site was once used for the Franco-British exhibition of 1908.

The architect for the Television Centre was Graham Dawbarn.

TV Centre features a distinctive circular main block - grouped around this circular building are the studios, linked by a covered carriageway to a scenery block which allows swift movement of scenery in and out of the studios.

The sculpture in the central garden of the building depicts Helios, the Greek god of the sun. Designed by T B Huxley-Jones, and erected in 1960 on the opening of the building, it represents the radiation of television light around the world. The two reclining figures at the bottom are sound and vision, the two components of television.

Television Centre was also home to BBC News - the News Centre opened in 1998 at the front of the building.

Before the opening of Television Centre, the BBC had improvised by adapting other buildings originally designed for other purposes. The earliest examples included the two small studios at Alexandra Palace.

2016 The development launched 23rd April 2016.
Slogan - They called it the home of British television. You can call it home.

2015 Construction began in 2015 and enabling works commenced shortly to ensure that key elements of the first phase of the scheme will be completed and occupied in 2017.
