|The foundation stone of Television Centre was laid in 1956 - many will recall passing it on the 'back stairs' from Reception - and the building was formally opened on 29th June 1960. A book was published to commemorate the occasion and the following pages contain excerpts from that book, which has been kindly lent by John Warner who had recently found it on his bookcase!|
|The cover design was by John Piper, who designed the mural in the original Main Reception
as well as stained glass windows at Coventry Cathedral.
|Over the coming weeks I will be adding some more pictures and some of the descriptive text from the book.|
