TV presenter Phillip Schofield has slammed the BBC for selling the historic Television Centre studios in west London.
The iconic home of shows like Dad's Army, Blue Peter and Strictly Come Dancing was bought by a property developer for £200m.
The site on Wood Lane at White City is being turned into one of London's largest new housing schemes.
Demolition work is underway to replace five of the eight studios with 950 homes, offices, restaurants and a hotel.
Parts of Television Centre, including the circular 'doughnut' were awarded listed building status.
The BBC will return to the surviving three studios when the project is complete in 2017.
The developer, Stanhope, said the new-look Television Centre would become a creative hub.
But former Schofield who got his big break at Television Centre as a children's presenter 30 years ago, said the BBC's decision to sell was criminal.
