Hordes of hopefuls turned up at the RIBA last Wednesday seeking fame and fortune as BBC talent-spotters set up shop outside the institute's Portland Place headquarters.BBC staff estimated the queue was 200 strong, with an average wait time of six hours for the screen tests, which were held in the back of two specially refitted black cabs.The auditions, timed to coincide with the AJ/RIBA annual conference, were for the chance to front a new architecture show in 2004 for the digital channel BBC 4.The wannabes included architects and architectural historians as well as members of the public.One architect, Tara Thomas of Lewes-based Bradford & Thomas, said that the 'few hours'she had waited were well worth it.'I'd love to be on TV, 'she said.'And if I could combine it with my passion for architecture, well that would be wonderful.'
