I don’t like organised religion but I do like churches and worry about their closure. I have little affection these days for the BBC but I am sad that Television Centre is closing.
Both are about shared human experiences. TVC was like a collection of west end theatres changing their shows every day. Amazing amounts of effort and vast numbers of people experiencing often moving events together.
Like old churches the place is soaked with those experiences and no matter what is done with the building those memories will linger.
