Final BBC broadcast at Bush House


Slightly saddened to learn that the BBC World Service made its last broadcast today from Bush House in London, and their historic home will tonight fall silent after 70 years. The end of an era.

Srila Prabhupada was interviewed there, and a kind man from the Swahili Language Broadcasting Service helped me in putting the finishing touches to Srila Prabhupada’s Sri Isopanishad in that language back in 1982.

I was interviewed for BBC Radio Ghana there, and sang kirtan to the people of that country. I also sang and spoke in a Krishna Janmasthami play specially recorded deep down in the sound studios of the building. Complete with exciting sound effects, I think they told me that the play went out to more than 100 million listeners around the world in three broadcasts.

I also spent a session training to do Thought for the Day there, but could not take up the invitation to record the 2 minute 43 second slots. The World Service moves across London to Broadcasting House, off Oxford Circus.
