Paying homage to the first solid-state colour televisions that were manufactured by Ferguson Plant and supplied to British households. The vibrant colours of the crossing refer to the iconic BBC test cards, and the structural grid also references the architecture of the Regal Cinema built in 1934. Paying homage to motion pictures, time based media and the birth of visual communications in the area.
