Shopping channel QVC is set to swap Battersea’s iconic Marco Polo Building to come north of the river to Chiswick Business Park.

The move will see the digital broadcaster join an increasing number of similar organisations with their headquarters based in Chiswick including Teletext, Discovery Channel and sports channel Setanta.

QVC was formed in 1993 when QVC, Inc. struck a deal with BSkyB to create a UK version of the channel which was first broadcast in the UK on 1st October 1993.

The catchy jingle played in the opening sequence of all its shows quickly became as well known as the channel although it is no longer used.
