The new owners Dovedale Associates intend to keep the Studios going as a full functioning facility house and the jobs of all 26 staff are thought to be safe.
The deal, which was completed today, was concluded for cash, with all of TVS' share capital being transferred to Dovedale immediately. Recent programme credits for The Maidstone Studios include Art Attack and Basil Brush. Historical credits include the Saturday morning children's show No 73.
Telewest said that proceeds from the sale will be used for 'capital expenditure in relation to its business.'
