Where in the world are new TV studios being built?

Also large shiny floor shows ( think TC1) are being done from four Wallers like LH2 ...or almost any redundant warehouse ....
as there are more spaces sets just stand ..no more overnight set and light whuch was how TC ran in its heyday


I'm not sure that's quite true with TC1 producing in one week last year: Russell Howard Hour, 2 episodes of Norton, 2 episodes of The Last Leg, and a corporate event.

Yeah, the history of that building is a bit of a mess to be fair! I didn’t include it because I completely forgot about it, but it still has some studio space AIUI. And playout and post facilities.


Collection here of some archive shots of Camden Lock in the TV-am days, both inside and out (nothing of the studios though):

Piece here about the remodelling that occurred a few years ago:

Thanks for those.

It's so interesting to me that the eggcup came from the architecture – rather than being added to the architecture from being part of the on-screen branding. Probably obvious to many here, though TV-AM was (just) before my time.

They've since extended into that courtyard area which seems a bit of a shame but the gap there looked a bit odd from the road

Well they did use the eggcups on the endcaps, albeit digital ones, so they were seen on air, though I suspect to those who didn't live in Camden the significance was lost.

To be fair, eggcups are assosiated with breakfast, so their use of them wouldn't exactly stick out as unusual.

Canada is seeing a boom in filming sound stages. CBS filmed Star Trek Discovery at a place called Pinewood Toronto Studios.

No I know that – I’m saying that the article above implies that their appearance on-screen came after they were part of the building.

Bovingdon is another newish studio, it's where they film Dancing on Ice and The Masked Singer.

I think it's pushing it to describe Bovingdon as a TV studio. It's a 4-waller.

It’s also not a permanent structure.

Which makes sense as the building would have been planned/designed long before the on-screen graphics were done

What's the difference then - just audience seating, gallery arrangement, rigging or something more. I'd argue over the last 20 years 4-wallers have very much become TV studios.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.
