Drop-In Night at the BBC

Birmingham Press Club’s Networking Night in May is taking place at BBC Birmingham at The Mailbox – providing members with a guided tour behind the scenes of its TV and radio studios.

So if you are a fan of Midlands Today, BBC WM and The Archers – the world’s longest-running soap opera – then this is for you.

“The tour also presents an opportunity to learn about BBC Three and discover what it takes to put together high quality news bulletins every day and how BBC drama is made,” said Jenny Wilkes, Partnership & Events Manager, BBC Midlands.

For fans of The Archers, which has been produced in Birmingham ever since it began in 1950, there will also be a chance to visit a special exhibition that showcases the history, milestone moments and celebrity fans of the radio institution. On display will be some of the real-life objects used to create the drama’s special soundscape.
