LAST OF MGM TO GO
In 1970, after over 30 years of film and television production, the doors of MGM Studios, where the interior sequences for 'The Prisoner' were filmed, were closed, and over the next 16 years the site was gradually demolished.
In its place these days, office buidlings, housing estates, and depots lie on the site of the former studio. With one exception.
Still standing, and the last of MGM Studios to be so, is a small electricity substation, near to the old East Gate of the studio. However, this is sadly set to change as Sainsbury's, who own the building (as it lies next to a distribution depot for the supermarket), have sold off the property for development.
The work is not due to start for another 12-18 months, but it will be a sad day when the very last piece of the iconic studios will be no more. News story can be read HERE. For more details regarding the MGM Studios, click HERE.
