BUILDING THE SOUTHAMPTON STUDIOS - 1960s

Southern built new studios at Southampton to replace its existing studios with the start of colour on ITV. The old studios, which had previously been The Plaza cinema, was now outdated and Southern had outgrown their studios and with the start of colour the company spent a huge sum recaiming land from the River Itchen to build a new studio complex. Once the new complex came into operation the old studios were demolished.

Here are some images of the construction works
