First dance

There finally was a bit of a do to mark BBC Worldwide moving into Television Centre. Tony and Tim were the hosts for an event based round Strictly Come Dancing. Presumably early plans to theme around Top Gear, with drives around the Horseshoe Car Park in a reasonably-priced car, had to be dropped.

So there was dancing in Stage 6 Reception, not seen since the Newsnight Barn Dance While Waiting For Late Night Mini-Cabs Society was in its heyday. Natalie Lowe (re-signed for Strictly 2015) and Ian Waite (waiting for the Strictly It Takes Two call-up) fleckerled at the base of the new twirly-wirly staircase, and Bruce, Tessa and Claudia joined Tony and Tim to unveil a blue plaque. This will irritate the official blue plaque lot, and others who put up unofficial blue plaques around Television Centre in the past.
