Summary
"On 2 November 1982, Channel 4 burst onto British television screens. Charged by Parliament to be innovative, experimental, and educational, the new channel had to attract audiences and make a space for new voices. Did it fulfill its brief? Published on Channel 4 twenty-fifth birthday, this book tells the story of its early years under Jeremy Isaacs, its inspirational and fundamental - first Chief Executive. It also assesses the legacy of the channel and asks: has it changed the nature of British television, and has the enfant terrible grown up, or is it still a youthful rebel?"--BOOK JACKET
