Studio closure

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read


  1. What’s happening to it? Could you get a group together to buy it up?

  2. Heh, funny!
    Nah, the whole site has been sold to a development company, who are going to tear it down and build ‘luxury city-centre apartments.’ The deal was done a few years ago, and it’s only off the back of it that STV has been able to move. Besides, the studio itself is more than thirty years old and, and very knackered. There’s a water tank under the floor and damp has been seeping up for decades, with the result that the floor is cracked. It’s not level, and one hasn’t been able to track a camera pedestal on it (!) for several years now. Plus, the gallery mixer is shared with one of the OB scanners, so there isn’t even a full set of kit.
    Amusing thought, though. 🙂
