Synopsis

Actor Richard Todd presents this documentary on the iconic Elstree Studios, where many classic English films were made between 1927 and the programme's recording in the 1950s. As well as relating the history of the studios, situated near the towns of Borehamwood and Elstree in Hertfordshire, the documentary features footage from over 40 films made there, including the first feature film produced in the studios, 'The White Sheik' (1927), and Alfred Hitchcock's 'Blackmail' (1929).
