BBC Derby celebrates 40 years

Tours behind the scenes of the BBC's headquarters in Derby are being offered to help celebrate the 40th birthday of BBC Radio Derby.

The studios also contain the BBC East Midlands Today TV bureau for Derbyshire and will give listeners a chance to meet some of the presenters.

Simon Cornes, Editor, BBC Radio Derby says: "Thousands of people drive past our building every day – we know many of them hear our programmes, but very few will have seen how we do it. To mark this milestone in our history we thought it would be nice to put that right!"

The timed tours (advance bookings only) take place between 10am and 5pm on Saturday 7 May and Sunday 8 May.

To reserve places please call 01332 361111 between 9am and 5pm. Places are free, limited to five per person, and are allocated on a first come first served basis.
