These screen captures were taken from a video showing the Central branding on the side of the building from 1997 – the year the studios closed. They show the cake logo. The last image was taken in the 1980’s and shows the globe version in an identical spot. Thanks to Matthew Gulliver and Lee Banister for most of the images on this page.

Images taken from a forthcoming '' documentary about the ATV/Central studios. More details coming soon!

Note the cake logo on the doors…

Are they Henry Butcher Auction posters?

Often seen with the ATV logo…

Central has moved to Gas Street – Second Left

Globe logo in the same place…

… you can just make out a faded circle today.
