Media release: Channel 4 announcement, Scottish Government response


RESPONDING to the announcement that Glasgow has been named on the shortlist as a potential location for Channel 4’s new UK headquarters, Culture Secretary, Fiona Hyslop, said:

“It is tremendous news that Glasgow has been named on the shortlist for Channel 4’s new national headquarters.

“With its already-thriving film and TV sector and growing production community I believe that Glasgow is the ideal location. The city has one of the most vibrant cultural scenes in Europe and is already home to BBC Scotland, STV, more than 120 production companies, and the new National Film and Television School Scotland – which is backed with Scottish Government funding.

“I congratulate the bid team on all their hard work so far, and wish them the best of luck in this final part of the process.”
