Except the Liberator one, which singularly fails to meet the remit.

Ha! I've just realised which programme the one above is from. At first I thought it must be some kind of Cold War drama.

I'd be amazed if anyone who hasn't already looked could say what programme this one's from.



I would have guessed No Place Like Home which is wrong.

The table is giving me a The Good Life vibe, but surely the room's too messy?

Yeah, the shabbiness of it makes it tricky - if it were tidier and more antiseptic I'd say Ever Decreasing Circles.

I'll guess 'Til Death do Us Part' or one of the later versions.

But really just came in to glibly say that I thought this was the New Tennis thread.

That's what I thought, although it looks a bit bigger - but I guess they all do empty.

I'm going to go with Sorry! but it's too messy for that really.

[edit]Nope. I would have had more of a chance if I'd heard of the programme.

The League of Gentlemen "sets" are just a sign in a field which seems very insulting of its production design. Steptoe could pass for a hipster pub, though. Thanks, Head Gardener, for an excellent link.

Is it Double Spoiler considering the edit?

Edit: looked at the answer and still don't know.  Good site though.

Bit cheap of them just to reuse sets.

Yeah, I was a bit disappointed with that. I notice one of the Strictly 'empty' sets has an orchestra on it too.

I know, where's the inside of the local shop? Or the Dentons' house?

Looking at the shows featured, it looks like it's only an archive of the sets for shows made at their London studios (TV Centre, Ealing, Riverside, Lime Grove) and Elstree. I think LoG's studio scenes were filmed in Manchester (the recent anniversary specials used the old Granada Studios, at least). The 3 pictures they do have look like production stills - the first and second images were used on the jacket of the Complete Collection box set in 2017, so were presumably shot during location filming for the anniversay specials.

There's no pictures from other older (pre-Media City) Manchester-based shows like Red Dwarf or The Royle Family either (though there are modern ones from Media City - Match Of The Day's sets). I don't think there's any from the Bristol/Kingsland (i.e. the old Casualty/Holby sets, before they moved to Cardiff) either.

Not Australian TV gem "The Joy Of Sets", starring Tony Martin and Ed Kavalee, then? It's great, though, so I'll just share a link to the first episode.
