Studio B in action at BBC Pebble Mill circa 1975/6. Jack Rooke on the left hand camera and Dave Doogood on the right hand one. The presenter looks like a young Tom Coyne, who presented Midlands Today.
Studio B was used for Midlands Today as well as many other programmes, which didn’t need the much larger, Studio A.
Thanks to Stuart Gandy for making the photograph available.
