    BBC Scotland originally moved to it's Queen Margaret Drive premises in 1935. The premises were originally built in 1869 as North Park House and it was later to become Queen Margaret College for women. A medical department, co designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, was added in 1895. Many new additions were made to the building after the BBC had purchased the property, and there is a distinct architectural divide between the old and the new buildings.
    When plans were announced to move the BBC headquarters to new state-of-the-art premises at Pacific Quay i knew that i had to see the old building when it was finally vacated. So i watched and waited. And watched. And waited. Finally all the staff had left and it was time to get in there. Well, there might have been no staff (except for security of course), but it appears that was all that had left the building. All the offices still contained everything from desks and chairs to photocopiers, computers and midi-systems (even the odd jacket). The television and radio studios were still fully equipped with a multitude of monitors, mixing desks, cameras and... well... everything, although much of it had been laid out in Studio A, probably to be auctioned off.
    My photos only scratch the surface - The place is huge and is like a rabbit warren of corridors. Very easy to get lost. And I did.
