BBC Studios and Post Production, a wholly owned commercial subsidiary of the BBC, has today announced plans to realign its business to place more focus on its core services of studios and post production related activity. Going forward it will be moving out of certain non-core digital media handling activities.
As part of the realignment, it is proposed that the Digital Media Services arm of the business, based in South Ruislip, will cease to trade in its current form. Consultation has begun with the 32 staff affected by this decision and the company is committed to doing everything it can to avoid redundancies wherever possible through redeployment or exploring other options with potential parties.
BBC Studios and Post Production’s operations in Elstree and other locations remain unaffected and the company remains on track to return to Television Centre in Spring 2017 in order to reopen studios 1 to 3.
