From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The studios are located on Whitchurch Lane, approximately 4 miles south of Bristol city centre. In 2010, the site stood unused after operating for more than 50 years as a former winery and bottling plant. At one time it had housed the full production line for Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry, run by John Harvey & Sons.

The studios opened in 2009 as a partnership initiative with Bristol City Council, transforming the disused industrial space into a busy creative hub for film and TV production.[3]

The Studios started out as home to BBC TV dramas including Casualty, Five Daughters, Public Enemies, Inside Men and Frankie , as well as micro-budget iFeatures films In The Dark Half and Eight Minutes Idle. In its first year, the Studios were estimated to have brought in £8m in investment into the city of Bristol.[4] In 2012, British director Jonathan Newman's fantasy The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, starring Michael Sheen, Sam Neill and Lena Headey, became the first major feature film to shoot at the Studios.

In 2011, Roughcut TV, makers of Sky1 HD comedy series Trollied created a purpose-built replica supermarket at the Studios, to film its first series.[5]

In 2013 Channel 4 game show Deal or No Deal relocated to The Bottle Yard Studios from its former home at Bristol Paintworks.[6] BBC Studios and Post Production designed and built new production facilities for programme makers Endemol.[7][8]

In early 2014, the Studios hosted production of US pilot Galavant.[9]

It was later confirmed that The Bottle Yard Studios would host the production of the full series of Galavant in Summer 2014.[10] Deadline Hollywood reported that "rising players like The Bottle Yard, which is hosting ABC's Galavant, are also heavily booked meaning repurposed warehouses are becoming de rigueur even for British productions."[11]

In 2014, the Studios hosted the BBC dramas Poldark and Wolf Hall.[12][13][14][15]
