Bush House was the home of BBC World Service Radio from 1941 till 2012. Transmissions in forty languages were broadcast from this remarkable Art Deco building at the height of the Cold War. It's from here the journalist and writer Georgi Markov broadcast to Communist Bulgaria, and paid for it with his life. In 1978 he was killed just metres from Bush House by a Bulgarian government agent. It's believed that Markov was stabbed by the poisoned tip of an umbrella.
