News Image
Elstree Studios has announced it will once again host BBC Studios and Post Production for the latest series of the reality talent show Strictly Come Dancing.

The Beeb is providing full studio facilities, post production services and technical support from Elstree Studios to celebrate the show's tenth anniversary.
During its thirteen-week run, Strictly's Saturday night live performances and Sunday night results shows will beam from George Lucas Stage 2 at Elstree. The 15,825 square foot studio space houses the set and an audience of 750 people.
Now in its 12th series, the production set-up for Strictly includes 10 cameras to capture all the action, including one 30' MovieBird Technocrane, four pedestal cameras, a radio Steadicam and four other handheld/lightweight tripod cameras. An extra Hot Head camera was used for the Strictly launch show to capture overhead shots of the dance floor.
BBC Studios and Post Production provides nearly 50 radio mics, talkback services and six portable stage boxes, equipped with 40 mic inputs and 16 line outputs. At BBC Studios and Post Production’s BBC Elstree facility, the complex boasts ten Avid Symphony suites to meet turnaround post production requirements. Between them, the suites handle up to 100 hours of training material each week.
John O'Callaghan, Head of Studios and Post Production Services at BBC Studios and Post Production, said: "We are delighted to welcome Strictly back to Elstree for a second time and to be supporting the nation’s favourite dancing show for the 10th year running. As you'd expect from the team behind the shiniest floor in showbiz, the production requirements get bolder and more ambitious every year, but our fantastic production facilities and technical crew are up for the challenge!"
