Ampere Analysis – strong case against privatisation of Channel Four

A strong thread here from Ampere Analysis, and a detailed report of their findings is here in The Guardian.

There’s this:

“If the government looks to relax Channel 4’s remit to derive more money from privatisation, then that would have a substantial negative impact on the UK production sector,” said Richard Broughton, an analyst at Ampere. “Channel 4 works with more small production companies than any other broadcaster, we estimate 200 over the last two years, and a privatised Channel 4 would likely leave many financially challenged.”

I’ve probably posted more about C4 than I need to on this site already, so I’ll leave it there.
