BBC Studios & Post Production to relocate to Elstree Studios

BBC Studios & Post Production to relocate to Elstree Studios

BBC Studios and Post Production is to move to Elstree Studios from spring next year, to provide temporary studio space for shows such as Strictly Come Dancing and Children In Need during the time Television Centre is being redeveloped.

The location of Elstree Studios is a stones throw from BBC Studios and Post Productions’ existing Elstree-based studios, where EastEnders, ITV’s Odd One In and Sky’s A League of Their Own is housed.

BBC Studios and Post Production will expand its Elstree operations to Elstree Studios until 2015 when new “state of the art” studio production space will be ready in the newly redeveloped Television Centre scheme, which will become its permanent home.

In the meantime, the arrangement with Elstree Studios involves BBC Studios and Post Production investing in the Elstree Studios complex and offering a mix of fully equipped HD television studio spaces.

BBC Studios and Post Production will continue to offer post production services, including SD, HD and 3D editing, high-end effects and sound while based at Elstree Studios, while its Digital Media Services business, which preserves, re-masters and manages content, will relocate to a permanent home in West London.

“Our mix of studio facilities located at these two well established complexes at Elstree provides an excellent working solution for our customers while Television Centre is being redeveloped,” believes Clive Hodge, Interim CEO for BBC Studios and Post Production.

“Our expert technical, creative and project management staff will all be moving with us and we’ll be investing in both Elstree Studio sites to ensure we continue to provide our clients with the range of services and experience they have come to expect from us.”

Roger Morris, Managing Director of Elstree Studios adds: “This arrangement will make Elstree Studios the number one destination for television production in London. Having the expertise, management and technical resources of BBC Studios and Post Production working with us, combined with the significant investments we are both making in the studios, I can’t imagine a better offering in the facilities market place for television producers.”
