British Movie Studios

In the UK, film studios (the buildings), quite often are considered completely separate from the production companies. You will notice that the earliest studios in the UK were set up just like their counterparts in the US, but the difference came with World War I. Most studios were confiscated by the government during the war and used for a wide variety of uses from making military training tapes and propaganda films, warehouse storage, government offices and some even used to store prisoners.

After the war, when the studios were turned back over to the private sector, sometimes the original production company was there to start over..... and sometimes they weren't and a different production company would take over the studios. British film studios, quite often, took on a life of their own.

This same procedure happened again for World War II, thus creating more of a separation between studios and production companies... For that reason, we have the actual studio history in this section and Production and Distribution companies in a different section.
