Munro Acoustics Design for BBC Cymru Wales Roath Lock Dubbing Facility

Roath Lock, BBC Cymru Wales newly opened studios in the Welsh Government owned Porth Teigr area of Cardiff Bay (formerly Roath Basin), includes a new dubbing suite which was designed by Munro Acoustics.

The technology is built around the console, the latest DFC Gemini console from AMS Neve, as used in several other BBC dubbing theatres. The desk features 16 faders providing 4 layers and 6 banks giving some 384 channels of audio.  The new suite will provide dubbing facilities for two programmes produced by BBC Wales, specifically Pobol y Cwm and Casualty.  The Munro design was completed by local constructors.

Munro Acoustic Director Andy Munro adds:  It is now possible to achieve cinema quality sound and video in the new Hi Definition formats which has created a demand for very high quality post production facilities and its great to work with BBC Wales to help build this level of development.

When the first production teams moved into Roath Lock in September 2011, they were fulfilling a BBC commitment to create a brand new centre of excellence for Drama in Cardiff. The state-of-the-art, 170,000 square foot facility, which the BBC has on an initial twenty-year lease, includes 9 studios and will finally provide a permanent, purpose-built home to four flagship BBC dramas Casualty, Pobol y Cwm, Doctor Who and Upstairs Downstairs as well as new productions in the future. Casualty, Upstairs Downstairs, the Drama genre team and Drama Interactive moved into Roath Lock in August 2011 followed by the Doctor Who production team in October and Pobol y Cwm in December.

Key to the BBCs commitment in 2008 to double television network production from Wales, Roath Lock is also part of the large-scale plan to move 50% of BBC network television programme spend outside of London by 2016.

The aim is that the studios will become a hub for creative sustainability, bringing talent together and allowing knowledge and expertise to be shared and flow across all of the productions based there. In addition, the ambition is for Roath Lock to build effective partnerships and become the foundation for the growth of the creative industries in Wales, brimming with energy and talent.
