Let’s keep press­ing our Chan­nel 4 case

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

DEAR Edi­tor, I read with in­ter­est Mike Bradley’s ar­ti­cle in the Post (March 15), re­gard­ing the an­nounce­ment made by Chan­nel 4 about plans to work more closely with the re­gions.

I share his dis­ap­point­ment at the con­tent of their an­nounce­ment.

How­ever, this is the first pub­lic an­nounce­ment that Chan­nel 4 has made.

The man­age­ment team of Chan­nel 4 would not be mak­ing any an­nounce­ment along these lines had it not been for the fact that it has been forced to do so by the Gov­ern­ment.

There would be even greater ben­e­fits if Birm­ing­ham/West Mid­lands be­comes the sec­ond HQ for Chan­nel 4.

The com­pelling, co­her­ent and pas­sion­ate cam­paign from our re­gion has not been matched, even re­motely, by any other city or re­gion within the UK.

There­fore, you would hope the Chan­nel 4 man­age­ment al­ready recog­nise this and not only pick Birm­ing­ham as be­ing a base for one of the re­gional hubs, but also the nat­u­ral home for their sec­ond HQ.
