Tony Blackburn: 50 years since joining the BBC

DJ Tony Blackburn presented his very first BBC Radio programme on 2 August 1967, hosting Midday Spin on the Light Programme.

He went on to launch BBC Radio 1 the following month, presenting the breakfast show.

Now, 50 years later, we have taken Blackburn back to Broadcasting House to find his original studios and some memories from the day.
