BackgroundPosted by Stephen Butt Sun, October 02, 2016 13:49:03
In 1998, five years before the BBC took over the site of their planned new studios in St Nicholas Place, Malcolm Elliott of the Victorian Society (Leicester) recorded a short film for Leicester Cable Television.

Malcolm points out the mosaic tiles which were a notable feature of the frontage of the old building. These tiles were rescued and are preserved within the the BBC studios.
