Session Description

As Channel 4 looks to stave off privatisation by the current government (at the time of writing), Ian Katz joins us at a crucial moment in the channel’s history. How has the threat influenced the inner-workings of the channel, and what does it mean for those in the room looking to get commissioned, or the regional producers who have built their business from the channel’s commitment to out of London? Is Channel 4 still the place for innovation or is it safety-first for now?

Session Produced by Nina Barber and Allanah Langstaff
