The programme, a special on heritage and buildings, asked “is it a jewel or is it a carbunkle?”.
Presenter Tom Dyckhoff took in some sweeping shots of the Bus Station and interviewed Preston City Council leader Peter Rankin and Save the Bus Station campaigner John Wilson.
Councillor Rankin went through the arguments about the cost to upgrade the building, saying it would cost £17m to bring up to modern standards. His interview was interrupted by a heckling shouting “knock it down”, causing much amusement to the BBC film crew.
John Wilson, who has led the campaign to save the building, vowed to fight tooth and nail to keep it and said “It’s heritage. You don’t demolish our history, you don’t demolish our heritage.”
