The only people who keep sounding off that there is a lack of studio space in London are members on here - until channels / production houses / producers say the same then there is no issue?


You are joking? Pretty much every Production Manager / Unit Manager / Production Exec scheduling studio shows shot in London will tell you what a pain it is.

Converted film studios, theatres, rehearsal spaces? They aren't TV studios...


Do you have the list of productions that have not gone ahead because of a lack of studio space?


Since the change of production space in London shows are being shot in longer blocks to reduce the number of turnarounds, and more shows are being shot in less-than-ideal locations that would never have been used were 'real' studios still available.

Shows are often now re-scheduled on multiple occasions due to lack of studio availability. So in the short-term - many shows have not gone ahead, as planned originally, because of a lack of studio space.

How many TV studios did the ITV network have at its peak? Presumably outside the multiple studios Granada, LWT and Thames had there was at least one general purpose studio capable of a mid-sized entertainment production in most regions?
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Entitled moaning about not having your usual handy Central London studio is very different to a lack of studio space. The industry is changing they'll have to deal with it.

The problem with the SJM era of Sunrise was that it was too bland, imagine going from a strong personality led anchor to a solid presenter, who is capable of asking the same questions, but doesn't have the impact of the previous presenter. It didn't help that for the majority of the hour, Niall Paterson was relegated to bulletins, leaving SJM to solo anchor, when he could have made it a decent pairing.

So it appears that Sky have decided to go for another former ITV breakfast tv presenter who is also part of Sky News's heritage to anchor. Kay may be marmite, but 'everyone' knows who she is and will challenge her guests accordingly.
