BBC East Midlands Broadcasting Centre in Nottingham 


The BBC Centre in Nottingham is home to Radio Nottingham and East Midlands Television. The daily news programme 'East Midlands Today' is a firm favourite with viewers in the transmission area. The studios are located on a new development close to the City Centre.

The studios are close to a busy roundabout at the top of London Road. As you can see the building has a number of aerials on the roof. The radio studios are on the first floor of the building while the TV studios are in the basement.

The centre is home to outside broadcast and news gathering teams for both radio and television.

Tulip Radio is one of few stations nationally to offer media training to secondary students in local schools from its studios in The Crescent, originally funded by the Leader + scheme. Some of the students have gone on to become presenters on the station. Tulip Radio is regularly involved in community events such as the Spalding Pumpkin Festival, The Flower Parade, Food Festivals as well as Macmillan Cancer Support events and The Springfields Fireworks Display.
