the end of upper boat?

the production BBC of wales main dramas like Dr who torchwood looks set to be moving away from Upper Boat and into a new purpose built facility housing all of the productions executed by the department

BBC Wales Controller Menna Richards has recently issued a circular to affected BBC staff to advise that the project was being considered, with one planned site been in the Cardiff Bay area of the city.

“During our staff meeting on April 22 I said that I’d let you know about developments in BBC Wales’ property plans.

We’ve been given the go-ahead to conduct further feasibility work on our preferred option of a drama village to accommodate all BBC Wales in-house dramas.

“What this means is that the potential drama village locations have been narrowed down and our preferred option is Roath Basin in Cardiff Bay.

“There’s further detailed work to be done before we’re in a position to reach agreement and we hope to be able to announce further details later this summer.”

The move would have implications for both Doctor Who and potentially the hospital drama Casualty, traditionally produced by BBC Bristol but has been brought under control of BBC Wales.
