BBC Tours 2015

The BBC’s first tour of 2015 is on Wednesday 14th January. Tours will be running throughout the year on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:00 and 13:30 and on selected Thursday evenings each month at 17:00 and 19:00.

Peek behind the scenes of Midlands Today, BBC WM, the Asian Network, and if you’re lucky, the famous and intriguing Archers studio (if production schedules permit).

The entertaining and informative tour guides bring the fantastic TV, radio and online productions created at BBC Birmingham to life in a variety of creative ways! Your tour guides will surprise and amaze you as they explain how ideas develop from script to screen and how production teams work right up to the wire to deliver what you see on your TV or hear on your radio.

Tour guides are as happy answering your burning questions on broadcasting wizardry as they are explaining the ins and outs of the centre’s mind-blowing technology. Between revealing the incredible Broadcast Support Centre and telling tales of the famous faces who’ve visited BBC Birmingham, they’ll even let you know where Nick Owen gets his jokes!
