Having supported Strictly Come Dancing since its inception, we most recently facilitated the seventeenth series (2019) of the BBC One flagship Saturday night show and are currently gearing up for the eighteenth series.
The Strictly Come Dancing live shows broadcast from our George Lucas Studio in Elstree. The impressive 15,770 sq. ft. studio specialises in large-scale TV productions, comfortably housing BBC Studios’ iconic 360-degree ballroom set.
Come behind the scenes of the 2019 Strictly red-carpet launch event, facilitated at our Television Centre studios, here.

The crew implements the production’s tried-and-tested technical workflow which features an 11-camera set-up, including a 30’ MovieBird Techocrane, four Pedestals, a radio Steadicam and four handheld/lightweight tripod cameras.
The production makes use of four of our Avid Symphony suites at our Elstree post production village – rushes are ingested, logged, edited, reviewed and incorporated into the main show, and Sunday’s results show.
We also provide post production services to companion show, Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two, with five Avid Symphony suites dedicated to the show.
