The partnership between Elstree Studios and BBC Studioworks has been extended for another three years.
The collaboration between the two outfits formed three years ago. Elstree Studios provided stages converted for television and BBC Studioworks provided the technical facilities within the studios to house BBC Productions whilst TV Centre was being rebuilt.
TV Centre will reopen later this year but the deal remains in effect.
BBC Studioworks hires stage 8, stage 9 and a George Lucas stage. All have been converted for TV Studio use, with production galleries, dressing rooms, make up, wardrobe and audience facilities.
The George Lucas stage converted under the partnership is the largest purpose built TV stage in the UK and has hosted UK entertainment shows including Strictly Come Dancing, The Voice, A League of Their Own, Let it Shine and in 2017 Britain’s Got Talent.
Stages 8 and 9 are used for shows including The Chase, Pointless, Celebrity Juice and Virtually Famous.
David Conway, Managing Director of BBC Studioworks, said: “We are pleased to confirm our commitment to the London studios market and our valued clients with the growth of our footprint across Television Centre and Elstree. Our trusted partnership with Elstree Studios has allowed us to deliver many memorable productions for our customers and we look forward to continuing this successful relationship.”
Roger Morris, Managing Director of Elstree Studios, said: ‘The continued partnership is a testament to our belief in the need for first class TV studio facilities in London. Working together, we produce a wide range of television shows at the world-famous Elstree Studios, drawing upon the state-of-the-art, professional television technical production facilities and expertise that Studioworks are renowned for makes us market leaders.’
