BBC Birmingham & BBC Academy

BBC Birmingham is the BBC's main network centre in the Midlands, producing both local and national TV, radio and online content. 

Midlands Today, Inside Out, Sunday Politics and Late Kick Off all come from Birmingham, and The Mailbox is the base for BBC WM – the local radio station covering Birmingham and the Black Country. 

As well as the West Midlands News Online operation, Birmingham is home to English Regions New Media HQ where approximately half the BBC’s News and Sport online content is subbed and managed. The Birmingham team also look after the linear (TV and Radio) online presence for BBC English Regions and a range of partnerships with other BBC departments and external suppliers. 

For network radio, there’s the Asian Network, and the world-famous radio soap The Archers, while The Mailbox is also the headquarters of BBC English Regions, including its Controller, finance, HR, operations and engineering teams. 

The English Regions Broadcast Support Centre is based in Birmingham – with a team of about 40 people who have technology and engineering backgrounds. It provides a central reference area and expertise in video, audio and transmission systems for all BBC Local Radio stations and regional TV across the country.  

BBC Birmingham's Public Space is open seven days a week and hosts a variety of permanent and temporary exhibits.  It's also the starting place for BBC Tours around the studios.  

Just down the road in Selly Oak is the BBC Birmingham Drama Village, home to BBC1 soap Doctors, as well as one-off dramas and series including Land Girls, Father Brown and WPC56.


The BBC Academy is the BBC's centre for training. It houses the Colleges of Journalism, Production, Leadership and the Centre of Technology.

The BBC Academy puts training and development at the heart of the BBC and also works with the wider broadcast industry, equipping people with skills they need for a lifetime of employability in the ever-changing media landscape.

As well as training our own staff, we have a remit under the terms of the BBC's Charter Agreement to train the wider industry. We aim to share as much of our training as possible with the wider UK broadcasting industry for free.
