Bye Bye and thank you Bush House
The final BBC broadcast from Bush House was today's 1100 GMT World News bulletin. Now the last of the stragglers at Bush join their BBC World Service colleagues over at the new extension to Broadcasting House, a couple of miles across London.
Thank you Bush House for your hospitality and for being a wonderful building that housed and aired millions of memories and momentous events for seven decades from 1940 to 2012.
This photo is in the BBC Bush House canteen in 1972 where three members of staff were photographed for the 1973 External Services Audience Research calendar.
"Assistant for Language Services and Latin American clerks: Elizabeth Witts, Julia Olalla and Gilberto Ferraz".
1973 shares the same dates and days as 2012 (from March, 2012 being a leap year) so you can use this as a desktop wallpaper calendar for July and August - talk about reusing, 39 years later!
