Blockbusters selects BBC Studioworks for return

BBC Studioworks welcomes two new and four returning shows to its Elstree and Television Centre sites

Comedy Central’s new version of classic 1980s quiz show Blockbusters will be facilitated by BBC Studioworks at its BBC Elstree Centre.

The series will film 20 new episodes in Studio D at Elstree and will employ Studioworks’ full studio and technical services.

Meanwhile, Studioworks will also host Your Face or Mine at Television Centre’s Studio TC1, again providing full studio and technical services.

Studioworks will also see the return of four titles to Television Centre in January – Peston for ITV in Studio TC2, while The Graham Norton Show, The Last Leg and The Russell Howard Hour will all be based in Studio TC1.

Strictly Come Dancing – The Live Tour is once again using Studioworks’ post production facility, producing VTs for the live arena tour which consist of freshly shot interviews and archive material from the 2018 shows, amounting to over 1,700 hours of content to draw from. The Strictly Live Tour is edited on Studioworks’ Avid Symphony suites, with delivery of Pro-Res master files via Aspera.

“January marks a particularly strong start to the year across our service proposition and our studio locations,” said John O’Callaghan, head of studios and post production, BBC Studioworks. “By continuing to embrace new technologies and providing consistency across our portfolio, our facilities complement each other perfectly. Combined with our flexibility and first-class customer experience, we always seek to provide an attractive proposition for clients.”
