Grampian has just moved to a "state of the art" office block!! There are very limited studio space. The one studio that they now have houses North Tonight and will house the political programme Crossfire but that will be it!! No more studio based shows can be made in Aberdeen now they simply do not exist anymore!! Not just job losses but surly a bad day for Scotlands broadcasting future!!!
But how many programmes were made in studios at Grampian in the last couple of years? not many I bet.
Studios are closing down all over the country because very few programmes use studios - it is now far easier and cheaper to film on location, something that for many production companies wouldn't have been an option 15 years ago. It is certainly cheaper to do than use a studio
