The Story of Broadcasting House
Home of the BBC

Mark Hines
Photography by Tim Crocker
Foreword by Sir Terry Wogan

Broadcasting House in central London is an architectural icon of broadcasting that is known throughout the world. This profusely illustrated book charts the history of the building from its construction in 1932 to its recent, painstaking refurbishment. Mark Hines, the architect in charge of the building’s redevelopment, tells the complete story of Broadcasting House, from the BBC’s early years and its commissioning of the state-of-the-art headquarters, through World War II bombing and the decline of the building, to the triumphant rebirth of Broadcasting House as a technologically advanced home for BBC Radio. With a foreword by broadcasting legend Sir Terry Wogan, The Story of Broadcasting House is a unique celebration of a much-loved institution.

Reviews

Lovely, richly illustrated history of one of London’s most intriguing buildings

The Financial Times

This beautifully produced history is itself, too, a fitting testament to a building, and a medium, whose story is far from over
