This   red   line   accurately   identifies   the   current   back   lot   boundary   at   Elstree Studios   which   would   become   our   Series   1   German   ‘BECO   Building   Site’.   It would   later   be   transformed   into   the   home   to   one   of   Britain’s   most   popular television soap operas, EastEnders.
