The city’s media and television scene was buzzing at the news that Bristol is in the running to be the new home of Channel 4. It was announced on Wednesday that Bristol – home to Wallace and Gromit, Blue Planet II and the Crystal Maze – had made it onto a seven-city shortlist to be the base of the broadcaster’s regional headquarters, due to open in 2019. But with 30 cities and towns initially bidding for the top crown, how did the city’s bid writers make sure Bristol’s pitch stood out from the crowd? The first move was to focus on Bristol’s cultural diversity . The obvious poster boy for that has been Mayor Marvin Rees, the first elected black mayor in Europe and one of the lead figures behind the pitch to Channel 4. It was a stiflingly hot day last June that I met Mr Rees at Paddington Station for a quick (iced) coffee before his late afternoon train back to the West Country, following a day of meetings in London. It was then that he told … [Read more...] about The inside story behind Bristol’s shortlisted Channel 4 bid
IT has been described as the biggest change to the structure of Channel 4 in the broadcasters’ 35-year history. The decision to establish a national headquarters outside London, alongside two smaller creative hubs in the Nations and Regions next year, has left a cluster of UK cities pitching for what would be a boost for jobs along with the added kudos of hosting one of the UK’s major media outlets. Birmingham, Manchester and Cardiff are all said to have staked a bid, as has Glasgow, and why not? In arguing their case, Glasgow City Council leaders have placed great emphasis on the city’s standing as one of the most culturally, socially and ethnically diverse city regions within the UK. At the same time they have rightly flagged up Glasgow’s undeniable position as one of the leading centres for the arts and media. Few places outside of London are able to draw on such a pool of creative talent and with the BBC and STV/ITV already ensconced in their bespoke … [Read more...] about Herald View: Why Channel 4 should tune into case for Glasgow
GLASGOW is to make a dramatic and credible bid to rival London as Britain's media capital. Scotland's biggest city has announced it will formally pitch to host a new headquarters of Channel 4, luring chunks of the UK television industry north of the border. Its leaders believe existing thriving creative industries on the Clyde - not least at BBC Scotland and STV - will act as a magnet for the broadcaster, which is looking for a new second home. Herald View: Why Channel 4 should tune into case for Glasgow The leader and deputy leader of Glasgow's city government, Susan Aitken and David McDonald, have already written to Channel 4 executives saying they will make "a viable and persuasive bid, reflecting our standing as one of the most culturally, socially and ethnically diverse city regions within the UK and position as a leading centre for the arts and media". But Ms Aitken and Mr McDonald - and their many backers in TV and business- must fend off rival bids expected to come … [Read more...] about Glasgow bids for new Channel 4 HQ as it aims to be Britain’s media capital
