Case study - W1 Programme, BBC
Programme of the year: 2013
In 2002, it was decided that three of BBC’s largest broadcasting buildings in London – Broadcasting House, Bush House and Television Centre – were showing their age, paving the way for the largest programme of work in the BBC’s history.
The BBC required a state-of-the-art creative hub in the centre of London.
Broadcasting House was chosen to be the home for the BBC’s national and international journalism, BBC television services, BBC Network Radio, online teams and professional support services, bringing together thousands of staff under one roof. The programme was to be known as W1 – named after the postcode of the BBC’s famous Broadcasting House.
