To answer the above: No, I won’t. I left Channel 4 last Friday.
I’ve been off work for a fair while, suffering from the seemingly interminable after-effects of
treatment by an over-enthusiastic chiropractor. Thankfully, I’m very much on the mend now.
4iP was an experience.
The downsides? Pretty much as Dan Heaf described, I’m afraid. No-one could ever agree what 4iP was for, a failure for which I must take some responsibility.
But hey, 4iP’s time came and went. There’s still lots of great stuff on the go at C4. For example, check out Alice Taylor & Dr Jo Twist‘s awesome teens slate. And keep an eye out for some nice surprises as the remaining 4iP funded products emerge…
Bold and innovative public institutions are rare, precious & important creatures. They matter.
I wish Channel 4 Television Corporation well.
