Air Television Back #4Sparks
01 Nov 2017
As a fast-growing Yorkshire-based indie we are ready to warmly welcome Channel 4 to the Leeds City Region. We’re confident it would be a great move for the channel – allowing it to tap into the region’s creative talent, digital skills and appetite for innovation.
It would also ensure Channel 4 can genuinely represent life outside London. We are proud to make programmes that accurately reflect the North and believe it’s only when programmes are made here, by people who live and work here, that the authentic voice of the area can be heard. We would relish a creative partnership with commissioners who share that nuanced understanding of life outside the capital.
The world-class universities, colleges and film schools in Leeds, Bradford and York are nurturing incredible new talent – and producing young people for the industry who are brimming with ideas and ready to transform the way television works.
Now is the time for Channel 4 to make a bold move to the north.
