System C

From BBC Elstree Centre (1914 - present)

This complete System C installation is sitting unused above the studios at the BBC Elstree Centre, currently used for shooting BBC soap Eastenders. The dimmer room was large enough that new dimmers could be installed while leaving the existing ones intact. The cost of decommissioning and removing the heavy metal framework and motors was too great.
We're grateful to the staff at BBC Elstree for allowing us to view this wonderful artefact!
