A Birmingham Post Special Supplement, Thursday March 19, 1970
An illustrated guide to ATV Centre
When ATV won its franchise to broadcast to the Midlands with a seven-days-a-week contract, it was on the condition that they had a headquarters in the Midlands.
This supplement to the Birmingham Post was published on the day of the official opening by Princess Alexandra.
The Birmingham Post that this was taken from was a broadsheet newspaper, very delicate because of its age, and pages have discoloured over time. It contains, along with these articles, advertisements from the companies who took part in the Centre's construction and equipping (an example below).
This is the main menu - there are links at the bottom of each page to the preceding and succeeding pages, and you can always come back here by clicking on the ATV Centre link on the menus at the top.
