BBC to create ‘Drama Village’

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The BBC has released plans that could see many of the broadcaster’s top shows moved away from a more central production base to a newly created, so called ‘drama village’, located at Cardiff Bay in Wales.

This new centre of drama will be the home of some of the top BBC productions such as, Casualty, Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood.

Although some dramas are already being filmed there, the main thrust will take place next year.

The new centre will be based at the twenty seven acre, Roath Basin site.

This is currently owned by the Welsh Assembly and is one of a few sites left in the Cardiff area to be developed.

While this is great news for Wales, it is not so good for other areas in the UK where production will be moved away as the centre in Wales expands.
