It's amazing how lavishly resources are spent on those who serve the system. I happened to be in
attending a live lecture by Dr Steven Greer, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/ufo-disclosure-2015-truth-or-greer.html, and I
discovered that the venue is just across the road from the British Broadcasting
Corporation's national headquarters. I arrived quite early in the area so I
decided to take a look. I approached the location from the south along Langham
Place. There's a strange church on the corner in
front of it with a rotunda-shaped sanctuary, a Knights Templar church, and then
Broadcasting House loomed ahead.
The original part of the building was opened in 1932 and was where BBC Radio was broadcast from when it moved from the older centre at Savoy Hill. It is in the Art Deco architectural style which was fashionable at the time. To me it looks very like Bruegel's
, in the same way as the
European Union Parliament building, see: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/shift-2-with-ian-r-crane.html.
There are some statues and reliefs built into the facade that depict scenes
from the Shakespeare plays, but there are some sinister elements to these that
I'll talk more about in a minute. I wondered where within this Babylonian stockade was
Room 101. This was where George Orwell's office was when he worked for the BBC
and it inspired him to give that name to the torture chamber at the Ministry of
Love in the book 1984 where the
victim experiences a personalized horror, all tailor-made for them. Why did
Orwell do that? Tower of Babel
At the time Broadcasting House was first built there was no TV service and when BBC TV started it was based at
before it was moved in 1960 to the
purpose-built Television Centre at Alexandra
Palace Wood Lane
This was closed down in 2013 and all the BBC's TV stations were moved to
Broadcasting House into a new extension that has been constructed at huge cost.
This has become known as "new Broadcasting House" and it has more
than doubled the size of the original building. White City
I walked down the west side of Broadcasting House. The early 20th century Portland stone soon gave way to the modern glass and concrete flank of the extension. There was little to be seen here, just reflective tinted windows and open plan offices. I walked along
Street to see the north and east side of
Broadcasting House and everything changed. The street level windows there give
a view of a huge interior chamber filled with offices, computer screens, wall
displays and multicoloured lights. I recognized it immediately; it was the BBC
Newsroom which you see on every national headlines broadcast, for example see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn4ntG1OXKM.
I had no idea this glossy high-tech journalistic throne room was visible from
the street, but it is. I tried to take a photograph through the windows, but it
wasn't easy, see below:
The glass is very reflective and there are two layers. I don't mean double glazing; there is an outer pane of very thick glass, obviously intended to be armoured, and a space inside about three feet across before there's another pane of glass directly in front of the chamber. Security is extraordinarily tight. I have a friend who is a BBC newsreader on a regional TV station and she's never been to Broadcasting House, which surprised me; you'd think they'd take her there on an outing. She told me that her own studios are far less fortified.
I walked down Hallam Street along the east side of Broadcasting House until I reached a place where I could pass under the "John Peel Wing" as the south-eastern part of the newbuild is called and entered into the plaza which is set between the old Broadcasting House and the new. It is apparently designed to make the BBC more accessible to the public. This had some peculiar features, and very sinister ones too. The tiled ground is covered with embossed metallic inscriptions. Some of the words, as you can see below, are the names of rivers, "
" Orinoco", "Thames" etc. Then there
are the names of cities: " London",
" Zurich", " Adelaide",
etc. Then it gets a bit creepy; you get: " My Lai",
"Treblinka", " Auschwitz", "Srebrenica",
These are the sites of famous massacres and genocides. Then there's " Atlantic",
"Bulge", " Stalingrad", " Somme",
" Verdun". These are all
famous battles. But it got worse... oh, it got so much worse!
Take a look at the photo below. This is one of the bas-reliefs that decorate Broadcasting House. It was made by the famous sculptor Eric Gill, who interestingly was also a member of the cultural Marxist think tank the Fabian Society. This one illustrates a scene from William Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, but can you see anything wrong with it?... Think about that as you read on. It is set above the doorway to the public cafeteria in the old building.
As I walked round back to the portico of old Broadcasting House on
Langham Place I
completed a whole circuit of the building. Again I looked up at Gill's best
known BBC work the statue of Prospero and Ariel from Shakespeare's The Tempest, see below. In the story
Ariel is a mystical fairy, but here she is depicted as a naked young girl.
Unlike classical art which tended to desexualize human nudes, especially
children, Gill has given Ariel a visible vulva. That is the last thing that ought to be displayed on
any BBC premises! Now do you see what's wrong with the previous image? The two
girls dancing on either side of Puck are lifting
up their skirts! I'm sure very few people noticed this until the Jimmy
Savile and Rolf Harris scandals; I wouldn't have. But surely today I am not the
I was distressed by my trip to the BBC. What are the BBC secretly hinting at with carvings of sexualized young girls all over the front of their headquarters? Broadcasting House is grand, impressive and clearly intended to shock-and-awe visitors. All the phases of its design and construction must have been enormously expensive. It still baffles me... even though it shouldn't, that so much time, energy, thought and money can be exerted on creating an institution whose primary purpose is to disseminate falsehoods, deliberately confuse and suppress mental creativity. I still have much work to do. I wonder if you can take tours of the inside of Broadcasting House. If so, expect me to report back to you soon.
