BBC Trust and Stanhope PLC: Don't destroy Television Centre Studios – they are a national asset.

    1. Petition by

      Save Television Centre Studios

The BBC and Stanhope PLC are planning to demolish four of the current eight studios at BBC Television Centre. BBC Television Centre Studios are a national asset. They are a unique, up-to-date and efficient facility that represent a vital part of Britain’s media. The brilliance of the original architectural and engineering design means they have retained their relevance to the present day and are widely considered to be amongst the best in the world. We believe the BBC and Stanhope plan to be inadequate, wasteful and irresponsible, and amounts to an act of cultural vandalism. We call on Stanhope PLC and the BBC Trust to change their plans and keep all eight studios as working studios for the benefit of the UK broadcasting industry.

      Shocking that such a perfectly conceived studio centre can be dumped in aid of political expedience and PC posturing.
