Ready to escape from lockdown? Then why not leave 2020 behind and join Paul Welsh on a tour of the iconic MGM British Studios?
This journey back in time is aimed at casual readers and film buffs alike. It is laced with anecdotes, facts and most of all, with a desire to ensure that although MGM British Studios is gone, it is not forgotten.
Paul’s new book, MGM British Studios: Hollywood in Hertfordshire, is a tribute to MGM British Studios and to all those who worked there until it was closed abruptly 50 years ago.
Described by Oscar-winning Director of Photography Ossie Morris as ‘the Rolls Royce of British film studios’ and by actress Sylvia Syms as ‘The closest to a Hollywood “dream factory” in this country’, MGM British produced many classic movies and television series.
Whether you are a fan of ‘Where Eagles Dare’, ‘2001 : A Space Odyssey’, ‘Fire Maidens From Outer Space’, ‘UFO’ or ‘The Prisoner’, you can buy your copy now.

A truly handsome and magnificent book, beautifully presented.
Much appreciated, Rick!
Would love to buy a copy but would like Paul to sign it.
We’ve locked down Paul for everyone’s safety.
Our May book launch and signing was cancelled but we are considering running a book signing in October.
I’ll post details as a news item once we know more.
I’m afraid Paul is still self-isolating and unable to sign
Ordered my copy 12th May, still waiting to arrive…
I know I posted it but Royal Mail delivery seems patchy. Please let me know if you haven’t received ity next week and I’ll follow up.
Just ordered one. I wonder how long it will take to arrive
Morning Robert. I received your order yesterday and am expecting a further delivery of books later today when I’ll package up your copy. I’m self-isolating and rely on a volunteer to collect copies and drop them off at the post office. I’m hoping he can collect on Tuesday or Wednesday so you should receive your copy before the weekend. Bob
My children bought me “MGM British Studios” for Fathers Day. A superb book. I can’t put it down !
Delighted to hear that you’re enjoying it!
