East Anglia Media City

Anglia House is the headquarters of Anglia Television, which today is known as ITV Anglia.

 

Norwich is also the headquarters of BBC Look East and BBC Radio Norfolk. 'Inside Out' and 'The Politics Show' are broadcasted from the BBC studios in the Forum.

 

Independent radio stations are situated all over East Anglia and community station Future Radio, based in Norwich is where Michael Chandler is the resident historian.

 

ITV Anglia, formerly Anglia Television is situated on Prince of Wales Road and is one of the smaller ITV companies and it supplied the network with some of its most popular shows such as 'Tales of the Unexpected', 'Survival', and 'Sale of the Century' which began each edition with John Benson's famous saying 'And now from Norwich, it's the quiz of the week!'

 

There was also the subsidiary company called Anglia Multimedia, which produced educational content on CD and DVD mainly for schools, and was one of the three companies along with Granada TV and the BBC vying for the right to produce a digital television station for English schools and colleges.

 

Starting in 1959, Anglia Television lost its independence in 1994 following a takeover by Meridian Broadcasting and subsequent mergers has seen it reduced from a significant producer of programmes to a regional news centre.

 

However, despite the contraction of Anglia, television production in Norwich has by no means ended. Anglia's former network production centre at Magdalen Street has been taken over by Norfolk County Council and extensively re-vamped. After a total investment of £4m from the East of Enland Development Agency (EEDA) it has re-opened as EPIC Studios (East of England Production Innovation Centre). It is now a creative industries enterprise hub, providing office space for local production companies and giving them access to state of the art production facilities, including one of the best equipped High Definition TV studios around.

 

Archant publishes two daily newspapers in Norwich, the Norwich Evening News, the regional Eastern Daily Press (EDP) and has its own television operation, Mustard TV which can be viewed on Freeview TV.
