1982. The first of Channel Four — 2 Comments

  1. I totally agree with what you’ve said. In fact, I would go so far as to say I wouldn’t give a damn now if Channel 4 and its various offshoots were permanently shut down. It (c4) seems to have totally lost its way and seems just like any other commercial broadcaster – ah, but it is publicly funded. Where’s the remit about catering for minorities? Shame on you channel 4!!

  2. It’s a shame. Channel 4 in the 1980s and 1990s was a revelation. It showed documentaries, art house and foreign films, which none of the other channels dated to show. Since 2000, it’s direction totally changed and its programming was aimed at the poorly educated 16-34 age group, appealing to crap and cheaply made reality tv shows, unfunny comedies.
