SAYS one member of staff at BBC Scotland, she can’t wait to move into the Corporation’s new Scottish HQ, at Pacific Quay.

According to BBC in-house magazine, Ariel, staff at Queen Margaret Drive have been given a sneak preview of their new home, which is expected to be operational next April.

“The building’s red sandstone floors and wide views over Glasgow and the river Clyde impressed the groups [of staff],” says the magazine, who quotes assistant producer (promotions), Catherine Roodt, saying she “can’t wait” to start working in the building.
