BCTV – The Brooklyn College Television Center
TV production classes have been continuously running at BC since the first TV Studio was set up on the fourth floor of Boylan Hall in 1958. Our current Studio B has been in operation since 1964, adapting over the years to many technological developments in the broadcast industry. Now in our fifth decade we are proud to continue our tradition of producing high quality programs by our many talented students, faculty and staff.

Working in conjunction with the Department of TV and Radio, the TV Center’s primary services include providing field production equipment loans, full TV studio facilities and a post-production lab. We also provide engineering support, set-building capabilities, and additional post facilities for Master’s students as well as tech support for the Radio Lab & WBCR.

Students currently enrolled in production classes or the MFA program may utilize the facilities and loan equipment free of charge. The Television Center also provides video production services to the college administration and academic communities as well as independent clients including the yearly live broadcast of the college’s Commencement ceremonies.
