The gatehouse at Pinewood Studios

Pinewood Studios is a major British film studio situated in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire. Approximately 30 miles west of London on what was the estate of Heatherden Hall, the studios were created in 1934 by Charles Boot and built within 12 months by the Henry Boot Company of Sheffield. Boot drew his inspiration from the latest Hollywood movie studios. J. Arthur Rank later took control of both Pinewood and Denham Film Studios, which were often used by producer Alexander Korda.

Television

Pinewood Studios have recently become popular with television producers, with the film stages being used for both single-camera (such as filmed drama, or the Ricky Gervais sitcom Extras) and multi-camera productions (such as Sky One's Brainiac). There are also two dedicated digital television studios on the site (named, appropriately, tv one and tv two) which have concrete/resin levelled floors (as opposed to the tradtional wooden floors found in sound stages). The studios are currently home to worldwide hit BBC gameshow The Weakest Link, and have been used for others such as Dog Eat Dog and short-lived ITV gameshow Shafted. More recently, sitcoms such as the BBC's My Family and The Green Green Grass have been made there. One of the first multi-camera shows to be made at Pinewood Studios, of the recent era, was the final two series of the Thames Television version of Strike It Lucky, starring Michael Barrymore, which was recorded in one of the sound stages (using an outside broadcast unit for camera facilities) from 1993-5.

007 Stage

Main article: 007 Stage

A vast soundstage, aptly titled the 007 Stage, was built for the 1977 Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me and featured a massive water tank, one of the largest in Europe. The 007 Stage burnt to the ground in 1984 due to petrol canisters being left over from the filming of Ridley Scott's Legend. It was rebuilt 4 months later and renamed Albert R. Broccoli's 007 Stage in time for filming to commence on A View to a Kill. Another fire on 30 July 2006 seriously damaged the vast 007 stage, which had been transformed into a replica of Venice, the setting of the James Bond film Casino Royale, causing the roof to partly cave in. Eight fire engines took 90 minutes to bring the fire under control; a spokesman for the local fire brigade said gas canisters may have exploded inside the building. Filming had been completed on the stage several days before and it was being dismantled, so it did not delay production or release of the $130 million (£72m) film.[1] The fire damaged stage was demolished on 13 September and 14. Construction on the new stage began on 18 September and was completed in under 6 months.[1] The Albert R.
