I’ve recently snapped behind-the-scenes stills for several shows currently filming at MediaCityUK Studios

The shows were:
Dragons’ Den – BBC2
Justin’s House – CBeebies
In With The Flynns – BBC1
Caught up with some old faces from my Pie Factory days while wandering around The Studios, the nearest analogy seeming appropriate (for me) being a trapse through Wille Wonka’s Chocolate Factory (complete with over-bearing doors and stark multi-coloured walls). I was particularly impressed with the In With the Flynns set as, as with Justin’s House, it had been built to be filmed in front of a live studio audience. Growing up watching sitcoms like The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Friends, it was an interesting insight into how multiple-sets are assembled and presented for live audience viewing. Well interesting to me at least, a peek into my mispent youth, perhaps, but a telling indication of how things get made in the world of television. Scheduled to make a return to The Studios soon to visit the Blue Peter set. Can’t wait.
