Nottingham served as the Regional Headquarters for the East Midlands. In early 1951 a pilot cable television scheme was installed, between the Regional Headquarters and the central showroom, the planning of a complete feeder, for 14M Hz operation, was started during August. Wiring of a cable television feeder of the Nottingham system, on the Bells Lane Estate, began early in 1952 and the first demonstration subscribers were connected in April of that year.
Rediffusion House on Castle Boulevard housed regional offices, branch offices, service department, workshops, vehicle maintenance and regional training centre.
