Elstree Studios Managing Director, Roger Morris, has resigned. Morris has run Elstree since 2009.

During his tenure, Elstree Studios has been the home TV shows and features including Strictly Come Dancing, Oscar winning The Kings Speech and The Crown and Morris also established a successful working partnership with the BBC technical facilities provider, BBC StudioWorks.

Over the last decade, Elstree has made major infrastructure changes including refurbished Stages, a large backlot used by the Crown, and now the building of two new large stages due to open in 2022.

Morris is also chair of the Board of Governors at the vocational college Elstree Screen Arts Academy, which has over 450 students. The college was recently made a Centre of Screen Excellence by the BFI and Screen Skills working closely with the National Film and Television School.

Morris and his team managed to keep the Studios safely open during the peak of the Covid pandemic.

In a statement, Elstree Studios said: “He has carried out all these tasks with commitment and distinction. We are grateful to Mr Morris for the significant contribution which he has made to Elstree Studios and the community and Borough of Hertsmere and the Board wishes him well for the future.”
