Working at Roath Lock

Welcome to Roath Lock, the BBC's state of the art centre of excellence for Drama, a place brimming with new energy and talent.

When the first productions moved into Roath Lock in September 2011, they fulfilled a BBC commitment to create a centre of excellence for Drama in Cardiff.

Located in Porth Teigr, Cardiff Bay, the 170,000 square foot facility, including nine studios and equivalent in length to three football pitches, is now the permanent, purpose-built home of four flagship BBC dramas - Casualty, Pobol y Cwm, Doctor Who and Wizards vs Aliens - as well as new productions in the future.


Filming Schedule

Casualty Ongoing - Wizards Vs Aliens Early 2013 - Doctor Who Mid to late 2013

Wizards vs Aliens sees two worlds collide as young wizard Tom Clarke and his best friend Benny defend the Earth from Magic-eating aliens, the Nekross. Aided by the hobgoblin Randal Moon, Tom must stop Varg and Lexi from draining the Earth of Magic!
