True North’s new Sunday morning faith and ethics series ‘Sunday Life’ is gearing up to go live on 20th April, and this is the show’s home – a specially built apartment within a converted Victorian mill.
The warm, informal and friendly apartment will be home to ‘Sunday Life’ for its 24 week run. In here, the walls are solid, the views from the windows are real, and the guests feel at home. Each week the apartment will play host to a lively mix of news, debate and conversation with the people at the heart of every story.
The loft is in Dalton Mills, in Keighley on the outskirts of Bradford. True North have leased an entire floor of the converted mill building, which houses dedicated dressing rooms, a green room, and technical and production areas as well as the apartment itself.
‘Sunday Life’ Series Producer Adam Purver and Executive Producer Andrew Sheldon first chose the space within Dalton Mills before the series was even commissioned. Over the past year they have brought together a team of designers, builders and technical staff to transform the empty space into a fully working TV studio.
The series (which was provisionally titled ‘Life from the Loft’) will transmit in BBC One’s Sunday morning 10am religion and ethics slot, and was commissioned as one of two replacements for ‘Heaven and Earth’ by the BBC’s then Controller of Daytime and Early Peak, Jay Hunt.
