As part of the ‘Artists on Site’ strand of the BBC Public Art Programme, John Riddy was commissioned to document the process of Broadcasting House’s architectural transformation. Beginning work in 2002, Riddy photographed the interiors of Broadcasting House including the Council Chamber, the Drama Studio, Room 101 and Egton House: the former studios of Radio One.  Presented in Riddy’s thoughtful and laconic style, the archive he created is a beautiful and timely reminder of these important sites. The collection of black and white photographs are now part of the BBC’s art collection.


This project is part of the BBC Broadcasting House Public Art Programme, curated by Modus Operandi.
