A grand time was had by all, fueled by plenty of drinks along with the additional bonus of food courtesy of WPUK.

It was once again a fascinating look at the use of email, an often overlooked element in communication strategy.
Reports of proceedings can be found on the event Storify.
This was the third MailCamp, and the last to be run by Steph.
Many thanks for Steph in organising this and the previous MailCamps – let’s hope someone steps forward and organises MailCamp 2014.
Thanks are also due NAO for the use of their basement conference room and the event sponsors.

The Television Centre BBC Club bar closed its doors for the last time on Thursday 28 March 2013.
The next day I thought I’d do a bit of research on the history of the bar.
Amazingly, a quick visit to Google revealed there was no text on the history of the bar (there isn’t even a Wikipedia page!) and only one historical picture I could find (the one above, which is from bbc.co.uk!)
I’m therefore in the process of pulling together a short history of the TC Club bar.
This will not be five volume book set (!), but a (probably fairly long) post on this site.
If anyone has any pictures, facts, stories, memories, etc relating to the history of the TC Club bar, I’d be grateful if you could drop me a line with the subject line ‘A short history of the TC Club bar’.
At the moment there’s also a lively discussion on this subject on Facebook, if you’re that way inclined.

I was passing through the Television Centre BBC Club bar on the evening of Saturday 23 March 2013 (as you do), and the next thing I knew, I was ‘accidentally’ attending the last TV News party at TC (at least as far as I know).
Quite a number of those at the do I had first met at Lime Grove Studios in the 1980s, when it was first the Topical Production Centre, and afterwards the Current Affairs Production Centre.
The party was formally being held because of a number of staff leaving Television News, but it turned into a opportunity to meet up with colleagues from the past and present.
A great night, and thanks to the organisers for making it happen!

I was at the last Friday night at the Television Centre BBC Club bar on 22 March 2013.
The bar was full to a level I’ve rarely seen in recent years. The evening was great fun but was obviously mixed with an element of sadness.
