Officialy known as 'The Television Centre' the Tyne Tees Television studios on City Road were a pair of furniture warehouses purchased in 1958 which were converted into studios. The site was chosen for its close proximity to the local telephone exchange in Carliol Square to facilitate the relay of program transmissions. In 1981 Studio 5 was built and became the venue for the famous "The Tube" music program. The program got it's name from the metal covered entrance from City Road which resembled a tube. The last program, "North East Tonight", was transmitted from the site on 1st July 2005. The buildings stood empty until November 2009 when the buildings along with The Egypt Cottage pub were demolished.
