Riverside Studios is one of
West London's leading centres for contemporary and international dramatic performance, film, exhibitions and television production.
The Triumph Film Company moved, in

1954the studio was acquired by the BBCfor its television service. In particular, series 2-6 of " Hancock's Half Hour" (1957-60) were made at Riverside. Drama and music shows were also produced there, including " Quatermass and the Pit" (1958–59) and early episodes of " Doctor Who". It was also the regular home of children's programmes " Jackanory" and "Play School" and the facility was in continuous use until the late 1970's.

In 1976 Peter Gillwas appointed as Riverside's first director, and established the arts centre as a leading London arts theatre with his acclaimed productions of " The Cherry Orchard" (1976), " The Changeling" (1975) and " Measure for Measure" (1979).
