Happy birthday Television Centre

The BBC's Television Centre opened on 29 June 1960. Four years earlier, Panorama showed how work was progressing on what was to be one of the world's first purpose built television production buildings.

With the future of Television Centre now in question as the BBC prepares to move much of its production to central London - and part of the building now Grade II listed based its special architectural and cultural significance - TVC prepares to celebrate its 50th birthday.

This film was originally broadcast on 4th June 1956.
