Save TV Centre Studios is a campaign to convince the BBC and Stanhope PLC to reconsider demolishing five of the UK’s best working TV studios, on the site of BBC Television Centre.
The campaign has been set up by a group of experienced TV industry professionals – directors, producers, sound engineers, technicians, crew and many others from all walks of television production – who all feel passionately about the demolition of not only some of the best working TV studios in the country, but the destruction of such an iconic and magical place to work.
