Grampian Television - Studios

Studios

Grampian's first studios and headquarters were located at Queens Cross, Aberdeen, where the company purchased a former tram depot belonging to Aberdeen Corporation Tramways in 1960. The depot was converted for use as a television studios with completion planned prior to October 1961. These studios were updated in the early 1980s with £4 million worth (2009: £10.5m) of new equipment for a new Central Technical Area and presentation facilities. These studios continued to be of importance to Grampian well into the new millennium, despite the transfer of the presentation and continuity to Scottish's Glasgow base and the loss of staff when SMG took over the company. In June 2003, Grampian moved to new, smaller, state-of-the-art studios at Craigshaw Business Park in West Tullos, Aberdeen, some of the most advanced in the world at the time of opening. Their previous headquarters at Queens Cross were subsequently demolished and developed.

In addition to their Aberdeen headquarters, Grampian ran a newsroom and sales office in Dundee which was moved in 1980 to a new remote-controlled studio at Albany House. A further newsroom and studio was located at Huntly Street, Inverness, which opened in 1983.

Grampian also had a studio in Edinburgh, despite it being in Scottish's franchise area, which had closed by 1969, and a new £4 million studio complex in Stornoway, opened in the early 1990s to facilitate an expansion in Scottish Gaelic language output, including the daily news bulletin Telefios. The studios were closed in 2000 following the end of the news service and transfer of other programmes to Glasgow.
