I spent a week working at Pinewood in summer 2002. My company needed a large space to work in and so we hired a spare sound stage. Die Another Day was in production - you could hear the Aston being 'warmed up' - and Angelina Jolie and co. were making the second Tomb Raider film in the studio adjacent to us. She could be found with the rest of the crew queuing up for lunch around noon. The BBC comedy 'My Family' finished shooting a series while I was there.fevsisere said:Thats an interesting bit of news about the building.Talking of Elstree has anybody visited this film studio or Pinewood.I have always mean,t to do this.
During the 60's until early 80's I believe Elstree was part owned by MGM and part owned by ATV for whom Gerry Anderson produced all those sci-fi progs. So Elstree Studio buildings crop up in a few shows of the time.Interloper said:An interesting point of note I also read was that the building used as the HQ of Harlington Straker film studios (Remember Ed Straker's car always pulling up at the barrier?) can still be seen on TV today, as It now doubles up as Holby City hospital in the Holby City series (Not Casualty as that is done in Bristol). Both are/were filmed at Elstree.
