1.42

Channel 4 has an important ongoing role to play in public service content, but is experiencing increasing financial pressure. It has already cut its programme budget for 2008 and 2009 in order to break even. Its reserves could be used to sustain its public service investment to around 2010, but certainty about its long term role and funding is now a pressing priority.

Channel 4 needs clarity about its future role and model by 2010
