Thanks to the well-publicised exodus of BBC Television Centre in West London, many people are surprised to find bits of the BBC still operate from there. While the studios have gone and the old "doughnut" bit of the building is being turned into flats, some of the buildings on the edge of the complex are office blocks - and BBC Worldwide (the commercial wing of the BBC) is now back in TVC. It's also home to BBC Studios (the division of the BBC which makes what used to be called "in-house programmes" and which, before that, were just called "programmes"). The meeting rooms are themed around popular shows and moments and this one is dedicated to the first BBC Television announcers.
