After the departure Michael Balcon, founder of Gaumont British to MGM-British it began making more popular films such as Oh, Mr Porter! (1937) and Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938). The former studios were demolished in 2002 and flats, designed by architects Munkenbeck and Marshall, were built on the site in 2004.
