See the gap?
It's right of the tower (above) and left of the windows (which calls itself the International Media Centre, but who knows what that means).
You'll be able to see a gap in the middle, but not for much longer. It's going to be filled up by the BBC. The Grand Old Lady is moving from her cramped quarters on Oxford Road in Manchester and is heading along the river to be near the fresh air, glitz and glamour of the Lowry Arts Centre in Salford.
Don't believe me?
Jet on over to YouTube and enter the name 'Mike Scantlebury'.
(He's my avatar, my alter ego, my nom de plum.)
Check out the videos and you'll see it's true.
Yes, the BBC is coming our way, and hey, they need a new building to work their magic in. Well, yes, right now it's a hole in the ground, but use your imagination - (it's what watching television is for) - and you'll soon be able to envision a multi-coloured office block rising from the wharfs that used to be Salford Docks.
Soon, it will be 'Media City'.

Lucky us.
