BBC Studioworks, a commercial subsidiary of the BBC, today re-opens the studio doors to the ‘home of British television’ at the Television Centre site in West London
Studioworks has re-opened three state-of-the-art studios as well as post production facilities to create the centrepiece of what promises to be a vibrant and creative media quarter in London’s White City.
Across the three studios, Television Centre provides over 22,000 sq. ft. of shooting space as well as fantastic new post production facilities, all served by an array of flexible technical and support areas.
The Studioworks facilities will play host to productions from all the major broadcasters and production companies, with ITV1’s The Jonathan Ross Show the first production to be recorded. Also booked for the Autumn are the BBC One quiz show, Pointless, and the Strictly Come Dancing companion show, It Takes Two.
David Conway, Managing Director at BBC Studioworks said: “It really is an exciting prospect to see Television Centre back as the production hub for the nation’s favourite programmes, and we expect to see ‘TVC’ reemerge as the production community’s favourite place to make TV.
Whilst some may get nostalgic about the re-opening, this really is a new Television Centre, set up for the future with leading-edge technologies, flexible facilities and a fantastic team running it. Having a range of independent bars, restaurants, a gym and spa, a cinema and a members’ club on our doorstep is also proving a great draw for production teams.”
