With Sky Studios Elstree, BBC Studios Elstree, and Elstree Studios providing at least 26 Film and TV Stages all based in Borehamwood/ Elstree; Borehamwood has become a major creative hub for the South East and London.

The new stages and studios will create 1000s of film and tv jobs and will benefit many of the graduates from the Elstree University Technical College, the vocational college for Film, TV and Theatre (set up by Roger Morris, Managing Director of Elstree Studios and Chair of the EUTC). The college which has been in existence for 5 years announced that students who graduated and left the college last year have all found employment, or have gone on to study further at University.

Elstree Studios is the home to Sony Leftbank, Netflix production "The Crown" and top television entertainment shows such as "Strictly Come Dancing" "The Voice "and "League of Their Own". Television Technical Facilities are provided at Elstree Studios by BBC Studio Works.
