TV Fact #258 – July 9th, 2015:

“The House of Eliott” (1991-1994), a British series, is usually cited as the last major BBC drama series to have the majority of its interior sequences recorded at BBC Television Centre using the multi-camera production method. By the time the series came to an end in 1994, this video production method had been abandoned for drama series, other than soap operas. Favor was tipped towards shooting using the single-camera setup, either on film, or on the increasingly lightweight video cameras that were becoming available. Some methods come and go in the vastly subjective concept of filmmaking that can incorporate thousands of different techniques and styles. But, as shown with the reemergence of practical effects in the new “Star Wars” film coming out this year, nothing seems to ever disappear forever.
