Tales Of Television Centre


This was a special Documentary produced by Richard Marson which celebrated the iconic history of BBC Television Centre, where all of the studio scenes for DOOMWATCH were filmed. TV Centre has been in operation since 1960 and will cease TV production in 2013 due to a £2 billion shortfall in funding.

It was interesting to note that of the programmes featured, DOOMWATCH was highlighted and even a small audio clip of Toby Wren was played at the end from the missing episode Survival Code "There's another wire!". It was broadcast uncut on Thursday 17 May 2012 at 9pm. There is a small Doomwatch clip and Robert Powell (Toby Wren) features briefly throughout the programme. There has been mention of more filmed material finding it's way onto future DVD's for Doctor Who which was featured a lot. One can only hope that should a Doomwatch DVD release ever appear, that more was recorded of Robert Powell too... More clips are officially available from the BBC here
