Queen Elizabeth officially opens the BBC's new headquaters.

英國女王伊麗莎白二世為BBC新廣播大樓揭幕。本周,女王出席了為紀念她加冕60週年的慶典活動。女王參觀了BBC電視新聞直播間並會見了BBC國際部的記者們。女王在直播節目中宣佈BBC新廣播大樓正式揭幕。以下是 Tom Esslemont 的報道:

The Queen first visited Broadcasting House in 1939. Back then she was a young princess, accompanying her father King George VI and her mother, Queen Elizabeth. Fourteen years later she was crowned.

In her six decades as Queen, the BBC's headquarters have seen many changes and challenges. During the Second World War the iconic art deco facade was damaged in the Blitz. Producers and announcers regularly took cover in a special air raid bunker. Since then, some of the building's wood panelled offices have been made famous by those who worked in them. Room 101 gave George Orwell inspiration for his novel 1984.

In recent years, Broadcasting House has had a one-and-a-half billion dollar revamp. The Queen will see the state-of-the-art glass fronted extension and inspect the BBC's multi-media newsroom.
