BBC Manchester on Oxford Road

The BBC is moving its Manchester home from here on Oxford Road, very close to my current flat, to the “Media City” up in Salford Quays. I always wondered why they don’t clean the front of this building. Here I tried to make it look as shabby as possible, but there is no editing in Photoshop apart from a simple black and white conversion. I could start the whole debate about TV licensing / tax and overpaid BBC staff / celebrities, but if they are spending millions building a new centre in the Quays and creating a lot more jobs in the area, this can’t be a bad thing. I would imagine in ten years this building will have been demolished to make way for more apartments, or for the ever expanding MMU campus across the road.
