Sorry, I know there is probably a proper name for this kind of production but not sure what it is.
I am talking about dramas such as upstairs downstairs and Poldark which were filmed in a studio or house like a play rather than a t.v film.
This has come to my mind as I have just been watching Our mutual friend 1976, very dark but I found the whole thing realistic by the acting and the set etc.
The same with Poldark etc, its as if we are there rather than watching a piece of action as in a film.
Just wondering if anyone knows why this kind of filming stopped, is it because companies now have more money for different locations and special effects etc? Or has it something to do with the actors and thier prefered way of working?
And does anyone know of anymore good studio dramas that I could look up?
