It does not need to be in London or be big, proves new development

Birmingham is set to become a significant center for premier television and film production with the establishment of ‘Digbeth Loc. Studios,’ a new high-profile studio complex in the Digbeth area. The studios have already attracted commitments from various acclaimed productions. The complex will be located within walking distance of Birmingham’s train stations, and will conserve the unique characteristics and heritage of Birmingham’s canalside buildings.

In other words, there is apparently a sound business case for a 80,000 sq ft studio, away from the fabled “West London cluster”, which tries to blend in with its surroundings, using existing buildings.

We clearly do not need a new large complex built on Greenbelt to support the British tv and film industry. Don’t believe the shiny PR hype!
