TT2 - BBC Maida Vale Studios

Abstract:
Originally built as a roller skating rink, this site has been occupied by the BBC for over 70 years. The complex contains seven large studios, five of which are currently in use and was home to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop for many years; this unit was influential in early electronic music. This former studio is now the home of the operation to digitize the audio archives of the BBC. Music and drama now play a large part in the output from the Maida Vale Studios for BBC Radio with Studio One being used for broadcasting public concerts, recordings, and
rehearsals by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. It is also the orchestra’s home.

Capacity limited to 15 persons.
