I've Moved Desks

 by Martin Belam, 7 November 2005

I'm back in the office today for the first day in my new desk, my 11th desk in 5 different buildings during 5 years at the BBC. I have to say that of all of them, this one has without doubt the best view. As I sit at my desk I can see from the new Wembley Stadium in the west of town, to the BT Tower in Central London.


Only 11? Pah. Done 15 in five years - total of 18 in the 5.5 years I've been at the BBC, and spread over five buildings too.

By all accounts, desk 19 ain't far away either...

I can count 15 in 3 and a half years, but that does include four months as a casual when I didn't often sit at the same desk twice, even if I was working for the same team. And some days I had to move desks as more shifts came in.

AutoStich is very cool for these sort of things.

8 Desks in 2 Years but I did rack up loads jumping between cover on BBC 3, 4 and messageboards in 3 buildings.
