Update, July ’09: For the latest on this story, please see: “Blue Peter garden still coming to MediaCity, minus dead pets, will be going ‘on the roof’”
The Sunday Mirror is reporting that The Blue Peter garden is to be dug up and moved to a new site in Manchester. It will be relocated when BBC children’s TV moves from London to Salford next year.
Blue Peter’s garden, which has been situated at Television Centre in West London for the past 33 years, contains the show’s latest time capsule and a bronze bust of the show’s pet dog Petra. All of the items will apparently be moved to the new site.
A Blue Peter spokesman said: “Children’s TV is moving up to Manchester in 2009 and we are planning for a Blue Peter garden up there. We are looking at a few possibilities at the new site.”
Anybody have any ideas?
