One of our biggest universities is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The University of East Anglia in Norwich is perhaps as well known for its architecture as it is for its academic achievements.

In half a century the UEA has become an integral part of the Norfolk economy contributing more than £150 million a year and employing more than 3,500 staff.
