.... or a studio with a window looking on to anywhere? Why not do what the One Show do and have people wandering past or peering in?

Or just a studio with no window? It's not vital to the programme they have one at all

Pop them in The Big Breakfast house! Very Happy


As nice as it might be to have This Morning temporarily broadcasting from the former Big Breakfast house, it is highly unlikely!

Although it might make This Morning a bit more watchable if they did!
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" on Roch Valley Radio is on temporary hiatus due to admin delays with the local NHS Trust. Long story!

and the Elizabeth Tower (which is the proper name for Big Ben - if you are a tourist)


To be fair- it wasn't called the Elizabeth Tower back then!

Though it wasn't called Big Ben either!



Indeed, it's never actually been called Big Ben. That's just the name of the bell.

Before it was called Elizabeth Tower, it was called St. Stephen's Tower.

Incidentally, Lambeth have an archive of old planning notices on their website, including loads to do with the LWT/ITV complex, such as loads of refusals for temporary signage (p131 is a grudging approval for an ITV telethon scrolling screen) and the original 1968 approval for the building, submitted only five weeks after LWT first went on air (pages 170/171 - may be best to start there and then go backwards): https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/Statutory%20Register%20PDF%20Files/0355A%20Upgrove%20Manor%20Way%20-%20Upper%20Marsh.pdf

Fascinating. Page 122 appears to be the modifications for the construction of Studio 7.

ITV seem to not understand how much their two main studios on this complex are needed. The lack of proper television studios in London is evident. Studio 1 and 2 are not only used by ITV shows, but also other UK productions. For example in this week alone, Studios 1 and 2 will be home to The Graham Norton Show, The Last Leg, Have I Got News For You and QI.

It seems that ITV want a much reduced base, with probably 2-3 small sized studios built side by side, probably each ranging no bigger that 3,000 Sq Ft each.

Now that BBC Studios 1, 2 and 3 at Television Centre will be up and running from 1st September 2017, maybe ITV felt these three studios can take the pressure from their three studios which will close by Spring 2018.

Some of the other applications also refer to alterations on the roof of the podium block to accommodate GMTV around the same time.
