A group from Haddenham & Witchert WI travelled into White City in February 2013, to visit BBC Television Centre.
As you can see from the photograph, some husbands were also allowed to accompany the ladies on this occasion, by special permission.
The day trip started with a visit to Westfield shopping centre, which was followed by lunch. Then it was off to Television Centre.
The group was first taken to the main newsroom where they produce the BBC world news — a real hub of excitement. Parts of the 'Dr Who' series were being filmed while the Haddenham group was there, and visitors had chance to see the famous 'Tardis'.
Thereafter, the group had a very interesting tour or the departments and studios. Among other fascinating 'behind the scenes' glimpses, the group saw the set prepared for Piers Morgan's celebrity chat show and many more.
The Haddenham visitors also took part in weather reporting and quiz shows.
Alas, BBC Television Centre is now sold and the production of many shows has been moved to new locations, such as Media City in Salford, near Manchester, and studios in Bristol. A new London-based broadcast facility is also available at the newly refurbished Portland Place, and there are plans to visit this additional location at some point in the future
