Fantastic Online Archive for Wembley Park Studios now available

Readers interested in the story of the Fountain TV studios (and its predecessors at Wembley Park) which closed in December 2016 - (see Philip Grant's "farewell" blog on this LINK ) now have an excellent new online resource available to them. Put together by former Fountain TV technician, James Smith, with the help of many former studio staff, the Wembley Park Studios Archive website can be found at: wembleyparkstudios.co.uk .

A documentary film about the history of the Wembley Park Studios was made by Fountain TV staff for its farewell party. It features clips from programmes made there, and interviews with key people both behind and in front of the cameras. "That's a Wrap! - the story of Wembley Park Studios" can be viewed on You Tube HERE.
