ITV Border - Studios

Studios

Unlike many new ITV stations at that time (with the exceptions of Granada and Westward) Border constructed a purpose-built studio centre, located in Durranhill, Carlisle. It was built in 1961 and contained two studios for use in productions: a small continuity studio and an interview studio. These were converted to colour with the station and were expanded and upgraded when demand increased following the launch of Channel 4.

In 2009, following Border's merger with Tyne Tees Television, all productions, including Lookaround, were transferred to Tyne Tees studios in Gateshead with all departments being merged with those of Tyne Tees. The Border studios remained empty and were demolished in 2010. Three reporters still operate in Carlisle as regional news correspondents but operate from a smaller bureau in the Kingstown area of the city which opened on Friday 10 July 2009.
