CONSTRUCTION OF THE MAIDSTONE STUDIOS - 1981

The studios at Vinters Park in Maidstone were purpose built for TVS on land they had purchased from Southern Television who had planned to build there for their proposed South East service. The new studios would not be ready for when TVS went on the air so they took over southern's former studios at Dover until Maidstone was ready
