My over riding memory of BBC Television Centre was seeing it now and again on Blue Peter when they ventured outside the studio. I never went there when I was a kid so even these days when I am in the locality I still find it exciting, even though I know the BBC left years ago for Salford.
Marylebone was for me for many years a place on the Monopoly Board, take a trip to Marylebone Station, if you pass Go, collect £200. It was only after having to travel to London a lot for work that I realised that Marylebone was more than the station and was an actual place in London.
The top tweet back in 2018 was this one about the newly revamped WHSmith at Bristol Temple Meads complete with storage cage!
Ooh nicely spruced up new WHSmith at Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station. Compete with new flooring (no carpet), new signs, new shelving. Original storage cage in shop floor though. cc @WHS_Carpetpic.twitter.com/fJg0EgO6f8
I did tweet a lot about the past this year, and will do less of it next year.
At number eight was a tweet about the phrase “digital detox” which gets bandied about a lot when people feel they need to take a break from services such as Twitter. If you feel you need to take a break, you probably do, but is it necessary to tell everyone about it?
Seventh was about about an incident at Oxford Circus. The tweet was picked up by some news outlets and my photo appeared on a news website.
Emergency Services at Oxford Circus Underground Station, including British Transport Police, London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service. I counted at least 12 vehicles. #oxfordcircuspic.twitter.com/VpNbGXSQ35
