Question: What location is BBC Children in Need 2013 being filmed at?
Answer: After being forced to move from its home of over 30 years, Television Centre earlier this year, the live telethon is being held this year at Elstree Studios.
One advantage of switching locations though is it brings the show nearer to Albert Square, which is also filmed on the Elstree site. Making the most of this, the 2013 show will feature a special live dance performance from the Square, by the cast of Eastenders.
Children in Need is probably being broadcast from the same Elstree Studio building, currently being used for Strictly Come Dancing. It seems rather a coincidence that the one Saturday in this years series of Strictly that’s coming from outside Elstree (from the Blackpool Tower Ballroom), is the same weekend as the BBC fundraiser.
Elstree Film and Television Studios are situated in Hertfordshire, England.
