The new map is part of UK-wide project to celebrate history of the BBC as it marks its centenary.
From the inspiration for Dr Who’s TARDIS to the filming location for CBBC’s Balamory, the people, places and buildings that have defined the BBC have been highlighted as part of a new digital map available this autumn.
Today (13 October), Historic England, Historic Environment Scotland (HES), Historic Environment Division, Northern Ireland Communities Department and Cadw, launch a new interactive map of 100 buildings and places around the UK, to celebrate 100 years of the BBC.
The map offers insight into the diversity of sites across the UK that are key to the history of the BBC – from famous studios to iconic broadcast locations, including 13 sites in Scotland. These include the colourful facades of Main Street in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, which provided the inspiration and locations for CBBC’s Balamory series; The Lodberrie in Shetland, built as a merchant trading post and now best known as the house of Detective Inspector Perez from the BBC drama Shetland; and the Police Box in Glasgow’s Buchanan Street, one of four that remain in the city which are known for their role as Doctor Who's TARDIS.
