Green Bay Scoops C4 Development Cash

30th April 2005

The funding has been greenlit by C4's Director of Nations and Regions, Stuart Cosgrove, under the Creative Cities banner.

The deal opens the door for Green Bay to develop programme ideas aimed at the channel's Specialist Factual department, especially in the area of Science and History.

John Geraint, Green Bay's Creative Director said:

"This tangible support will help us to exploit Green Bay's strength in the specialist factual genres and to bring to the Channel a range of exciting new cutting-edge proposals."

C4's investment will be matched by the Welsh Assembly Government's Knowledge Bank for Business, which is already supporting Green Bay's Strategic Business Review, as revealed in Broadcast last month.

Green Bay - identified by the National Entrepreneurship Observatory as one of the fifty fastest growing businesses in any sector in Wales - is currently assessing options for its future growth, including mergers, acquisitions and/or a further round of venture capital investment.
