was the Major Production Studio where Dramas and Operas were produced.
The Studio Floor was 80ft x 60ft (24m x 18m with a 25ft ceiling
(8m). A panagraph lighting system allowed for precise lighting placement
so the studio was ideal for this purpose. The studio was officially
opened on 29th January, 1958.
