Step inside the exciting world of broadcasting on one of the BBC’s award-winning tours - a rainy day idea that all the family can enjoy.
Now in its 80th year, BBC Bristol, the regional television centre for the West of England, sits amongst the pretty Georgian buildings of Whiteladies Road.
The BBC Natural History Unit also based here, is seen as a world leader as producer and broadcaster of natural history content, creating programmes like Frozen Planet, Africa and Planet Earth.
During a tour of the building you’ll hear how TV and radio programmes have been (and still are) made over the years, as well as have a go at presenting the news and weather. You can even star in your own radio drama. There’ll also be the chance to see the Points West and Radio Bristol studios and the rooftop garden studio where the Points West weather forecast is occasionally broadcast.
A unique celebration of silent film and slapstick comedy, the festival offers a unique chance to watch silent films with a live orchestra along with a VIP list of guests and celebrities sharing their passion for this genre.
