Talent Schemes

Great television should engage and surprise. Formats that reinvent and reimagine the tried and tested. Content that inspires and connects us to new audiences. Creating pioneering output means taking risks, keeping things fresh and seeing things through new eyes and from different perspectives. Which is why we invest in talent – those who can create compelling ideas and fascinating stories; and those with the vision to devise new ways to showcase them.

4Screenwriting

Creating the right conditions for new talent to flourish, to express its voice and bring it to a wider audience; these are the key drivers behind 4Screenwriting. It’s a hothouse for writers. Graduates from the course include those who’ve gone on to write for SHAMELESS and INDIAN SUMMERS for Channel 4 and YOUNGERS and BANANA for E4. This is your chance, not to follow in their footsteps, but to discover your own path to making great television.

4Stories

Modern Britain is a richly diverse melting pot of cultures and ideas. It’s part of our extensive remit to reflect this and 4Stories offers you the perfect way to get involved.

This initiative is about seeking out fresh perspectives and distinctive voices amongst new and emerging talent. It’s about nurturing that talent and giving it the platform it deserves to reach a wider audience. We’re looking for three writers and three directors to tell one big story from three unique points of view. The result will be a three-part series of half-hour, interconnected films which we’ll broadcast on Channel 4.

Investigative Journalism

You won’t need previous television experience to take part in the Dispatches Investigative Journalism Training Scheme. But you will need a good eye for detail and an instinct for a good story. We’re looking for people who know how to investigate. You might be a lawyer, doctor, police officer or accountant. Similarly, you could be working in print journalism. Whatever your background, this is a chance for people with solid professional experience to transfer their skills and experience to work in investigative broadcast journalism.

The Channel 4 & Northumbria University Writing for TV Awards

New stories told by different voices from fresh perspectives. This is what Channel 4 is all about. Our partnership with Northumbria University and New Writing North will see us seek out these new storytellers through series of roadshows in Northern cities. Twenty submissions will go before our judging panel from which two bursary winners will be identified. They will go on to work with Bonafide and Lime Pictures to realise their work to production standard.
