I once did some work at Ealing studios. Not for the studio directly but for another company renting out office space.
It's not a very large studio. Not compared to Elstree or anything like Paramount.
Some of the Interior shots for Downtown Abbey are being shot there.
Here's a couple of pictures you might like.
One is for a "casting call for mopeds. They were doing a remake of "Brighton Beach"
And they needed a bunch of moded bikes.
The other is of the Red Lion pub across the street from Ealing. They have pictures of Alec Guinness and other famous British actors sitting in the
pub. There's a story that the pub was also known as Stage 6 I think.
What ever number it was it was one number above the actual number of stages the studio actually had.
Some one would call the studio looking for one of the actors or producers and they would be across the street at the Red lion having a pint. So to
cover people they would say they were on Stage 6.
