Backstage at the BBC

To BBC Television Centre this weekend on a behind-the-scenes tour. Despite being a fully paid up member of the TV license brigade, the tour still costs £9.50 per person.

Highlight of the day for me was seeing the outdoor area where Roy Castle broke the record for the world's largest tap-dancing event on Record Breakers back in the 70s. Also got to see the studio where Strictly Come Dancing is filmed and saw The Miranda Hart show being filmed for BBC3 this autumn too.

Also found out that BBC are currently undertaking a review of Radio 2 and 6 Music. So if you're a fan of either, make your views known before Thursday July 30 at the BBC website here.

How brilliant. I'd love to do this.

It was really good. We also did the tour of BBC Radio (Broadcasting House) in central London a few months ago too, very interesting also.
