Channel 4 makes a significant contribution to talent, audiences and the independent production sector in the Nations and Regions, spending over £1.5bn on TV production in the Nations and Regions over the last decade. In 2016 this was at a high of £169m.

To support this Channel 4 has a dedicated Nations and Regions team, based in Glasgow.

A strategic arm of the commissioning division, we support production companies from the Nations and Regions by providing targeted development funding and helping Indies to build long-term relationships with Channel 4 commissioning editors.

We facilitate engagement between commissioners and Indies across the UK, with 21 briefing events in 2017. If you would like to enquire about events in your region please email Heather on the address below.

Our Nations and Regions funding vehicle is the Alpha Fund - a dedicated development fund aimed at supporting diverse and emerging Indies outside of London. The focus is on slate or talent development rather than attached to single programme ideas. To discuss how best to apply, please approach a member of the Nations and Regions team. See details below
