Happy Birthday BBC Cymru Wales

BBC Cymru Wales Plaque

As you can see from the plaque, BBC Cymru Wales made its first radio broadcast on 13 February 1923. The studio was on Castle Street, near the junction with Womanby Street.

BBC Cymru Wales is now one of the biggest employers in Cardiff with about 1200 staff and the huge Porth Teigr studios in Cardiff Bay produce famous shows like Dr Who, Sherlock, Casualty and Pobl y Cwm.

Work is due to start soon on the new BBC headquarters in front of Cardiff Central Station.
