BBC moves news out of West London

BBC TV CentreThe last TV network news from Television Centre in west London has been broadcast on BBC One.

At 10pm on March 17, the final news broadcast was completed, signing off nearly 45 years of bulletins.

TV Centre, which has been sold for redevelopment, was designed by architects Norman & Dawbarn. It opened in 1960 and the news first went out from the site nine years later. As of Monday 18 March, the entire BBC news operation will be based at Broadcasting House in central London, part of the ongoing process of the BBC moving away from White City.

Television Centre, which was sold to Stanhope for £200m last year, closes on 31 March and will be redeveloped into hotels, flats, a cinema and office space.

The main television studios will be retained and refurbished for leasing out to production companies, including the BBC, from 2014.
