See a great British institution, up close and personal

Birmingham, West Midlands

Visit the Beeb's home in Birmingham, and see how some of its best shows are made.

The Beeb has long been a stalwart of the Birmingham skyline, and on this tour you can see how some of its longest-running shows are made in-house. From The Archers to Midlands Today, take a peek behind the scenes, learn how they get from script to screen, and take part in some interactive fun. Why not record your own drama, or present the weather? If so, then sunshine, please.

Each tour lasts an hour and is presented by an official BBC tour guide. Make sure to test your guide’s encyclopedic knowledge with a tough question: perhaps you'd like to know how sound effects are created or how news presenters pick their shirts.
