I was exploring Carlton Hill yesterday, trying to identify the large house that is/was the studios. My father (Bob King) worked there, possibly towards the end of the war, certainly in the few years after. We lived just round the corner and one of my earliest memories is going with him to the studio. The little porter's desk at the front door was too much like an ice-cream kiosk for me to resist, and the porter would always let me go inside and play at selling ice-creams. Aaaooooh! I really don't know what work he did - he was fresh out of the Navy, where he had been instrumental in setting up their film and audio-visual unit, and so maybe he did some of that work at Carlton Hill?
I'd so much appreciate any info from anyone who worked there or knows where it might be written about. Father died twenty years ago now - if only (how often do we say that?) I had asked him more about his early working life. Later he started Little, King and Partners, and then Cine-Europe.
