The building, home to Supergran and The Tube, was custom built by Tyne Tees in the 1950s, however was finally emptied out as ITV reduced its regional presence and moved its news operation to Gateshead.
The building remained in use, occupied by a number of small businesses, however the threat of demolition remained. And in January, the bulldozers moved in.
The sight has been captured in a number of video montages posted on to YouTube. I'd say enjoy, but it doesn't seem quite right
