With the likelihood of any of the core BBC programmes being cancelled due to the requirements of the Government’s white paper still ever present, I am pleased to be reporting on something positive. Channel Four bosses have ruled out today a move from London to Birmingham – an idea from John Whittingdale – as part of the Government’s mulling over of plans of what to do with Channel 4.


C4 Chairman Charles Gurassa commented, “I have been written to by various mayors of various cities telling me why theirs is a great city and why we should move there. All our major competitors are based in London, that is where the market has evolved and for the foreseeable future commissioners and advertising sales will continue to be based in and around the London area”.
