The Socks at BBC TV Centre

BBC TV Centre is, tragically, closing its doors and winding up production after 50 years of being the centre of British broadcasting. I am so so glad that The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre got the chance to make a tiny bit of TV there before it got sold off. Here's their behind-the-scenes video from the dressing rooms of TVC2, home to Blue Peter and Top Of The Pops among many other shows. Enjoy...

This video is from way back in 2007, before the Socks wore any costumes, not even the ubiquituous kilt, and possibly doesn't rank among their best. But I've enjoyed watching it for the first time in five years, we hope you do too.
