    First of all, sorry for the slightly outdated report. I'm new here and wanted to share something!

    A bit of background about the site (most of this courtesy of Wikipedia!):
    Granada Studios were television studios on Quay Street in Manchester with the facility to broadcast live and film drama programmes and were the headquarters of Granada Television (then Granada Media Group and later ITV Granada) between 1956 and 2013. The studios were the oldest operating purpose-built television studios in the United Kingdom and were arguably the most famous studio after the BBC Television Centre.

    The studios were owned by ITV Studios and BBC Resources through a joint venture company, 3SixtyMedia. After a dip in production during the early 2000s, the studios underwent a revival from 2009 until their closure in June 2013, when ITV Granada and ITV Studios moved to MediaCityUK in Salford Quays and Trafford Quays.

    The site is still very much in use and serves a number of different purposes including office, retail and exhibition space - and of course, Coronation Street The Tour. http://oldgranadastudios.com/

    Studio 12: this one has a nice bit of history - home to The Beatles' first ever television performance in 1962, and, more recently, the first televised general election debate in 2010.

    For those familiar with the geography of underground Manchester, this door might possibly lead to somewhere exciting...

    Thanks for looking, hope that wasn't too cack for a first post!
