Goodbye Television Centre

Goodbye Television Centre

Fri Mar 22, 7.30-11.40pm BBC4

A whole evening dedicated to one building sounds like TV designed to have Prince Charles in either apoplexy or raptures, depending on the building. But we suspect he’ll probably be quite happy to tune in tonight, as BBC4 celebrates 53 years of TV and radio from west London’s iconic (and closing) Television Centre.

At 8.30pm, former BBC Chairman Michael Grade invites an array of radio and TV folk to take a walk down memory lane, so if you’re the kind of person who likes to hear anecdotes from such light entertainment giants as Penelope Keith, Ronnie Corbett, Meera Syal, Sir Michael Parkinson, Sir Terry Wogan and Sir David Jason (plus the mighty Attenborough, of course), this will be just your thing.

Younger viewers (that’s the under-fifties) might prefer Zoë Ball, David Mitchell, Dara O’Briain and a studio tour with Victoria Coren which includes Miranda’s shop and the Monty Python set. There’s also Madness performing outside the building at 7.30pm, and Richard Thompson’s ‘BBC Four Session: Goodbye Television Centre’ airing from the centre’s studio eight at 10.35pm.
