Channel 4 is the home of challenging investigative journalism which holds power to account. Channel 4 News is valued for its independence and plays a key role in democratic discussion in Britain.

British politics is our top priority at present. We are also looking for major domestic and international investigations and strong, journalistic examinations of major brands. We are always keen on receiving populist ideas for singles or short series. Unique access with strong current affairs purpose like our series Inside the American Embassy is important to us.

Our flagship current affairs programmes is Dispatches which includes everything from popular domestic half hour investigations to lengthy undercover international films. We commission a wide range of other current affairs including consumer series like Supershoppers  and popular singles like When Cruises Go Wrong. Our UNREPORTED WORLD strand is made by Quicksilver.
