An Exciting Future for BBC Studios and Post Production
The BBC has confirmed the sale of the leasehold of Television Centre to Stanhope plc.
The BBC and Stanhope will work together on the initial planning and development and the BBC will retain a continued presence at Television Centre.
As a commercial venture, BBC Studios and Post Production Ltd. is very pleased to announce that it will lease refurbished studio production space in the completed scheme from 2015 and will be amongst the first parts of the re-purposed site to go-live, including a return to the iconic Studio 1.
In the meantime, it’s very much business as usual as the studios, post production and digital media services business continues beyond 2013. It will soon be in a position to announce details of its plans, continuing to offer the complete range of services in the South East during the period it is away from Television Centre.
Clive Hodge, Interim CEO for BBC Studios and Post Production said:
“We're pleased to confirm that on the back of the recent news about the future of Television Centre, we will shortly announce the details of where our studios and post production services will be based until 2015. In the meantime, until we leave TVC next year, it’s very much business as usual for us and our clients using our BBC Television Centre, Elstree and Bristol facilities. We're excited to confirm that we'll be returning to the re-developed TVC site with fantastic new facilities in early 2015. In the interim, much of our high-end studios technology at BBC Television Centre will be relocated so clients will continue to enjoy the same high-quality studios and studios support services. Our thriving digital media services team are set to relocate to a dedicated and permanent home in West London around the start of 2013.”
