On Friday 7 December, AUGB hosted a reception for BBC World Service journalists to mark the World Service's move from Bush House to Langham Place.

The World Service has broadcast from Bush House since 1941, and has reported on all the significant world events since then, often being seen as the only reliable voice in countries subject to war, turmoil and repressive regimes.

During the reception, there was a presentation of the specially commissioned painting, 'Cycling to Bush House' by well-known Ukrainian artist Dmytro Dobrovolsky, which featured on the front cover of the BBC's commemorative book about Bush House, containing messages and memories from journalists who have worked there over the years.

The BBC World Service News Editor, Andrew Whitehead, was presented with an original AUGB lapel badge, on its original card backing, made by Royal medal makers J R Gaunt and son over 60 years ago. To read his blog about the evening, click here.

AUGB wishes the BBC World Service well in their new home in Langham Place, and hopes it will continue its tradition of broadcasting news and information honestly and fearlessly to its millions of listeners all over the world.
