History[edit] BBC
BBC
Four launched on 2 March 2002 at 19:00 GMT, having been delayed from the original planned 2001 launch. BBC
BBC
Four began originally as a late schedule to BBC
BBC
Two, before it received its own channel, along with BBC
BBC
Three. Curiously, BBC
BBC
Four had to launch before BBC
BBC
Three as a result of the government delaying approval plans. The channel replaced BBC
BBC
Knowledge, an educational and cultural channel which had undergone many changes throughout its lifetime; in its final format it carried a schedule of documentaries and art programming, essentially a test of the new BBC
BBC
Four schedule. BBC
BBC
Four would rebrand this channel, and bring it into line with the well recognised BBC
BBC
One and Two brands at the same time. Planning for the new channel, along with the new BBC
BBC
Three, had been in progress since October 2000; however, the incumbent government delayed approving the new BBC
BBC
digital plans. The BBC
BBC
Four plans were approved earlier, and as a result launched before BBC
BBC
Three. BBC
BBC
Four was different from the old BBC
BBC
Knowledge: the channel would be more heavily promoted with more new and original programming and the channel would not be broadcast 24 hours a day. This was because on the Freeview digital terrestrial platform, BBC
BBC
Four is broadcast in a statistically multiplexed stream in Multiplex B that timeshares with the CBeebies
CBeebies
channel (which is on air from 06:00 until 19:00). As a result, BBC
BBC
Four broadcasts from 19:00 to around 04:00 each night, with an hour's down-time and promotions for CBeebies
CBeebies
before the start of that channel's schedule. On 12 May 2011, BBC
BBC
Four was added to the Sky EPG in the Republic of Ireland on channel 230. It later moved to EPG 211 to free up space for new channels.[5] Organisation[edit] BBC
BBC
Four forms part of the BBC
BBC
Vision group, and as a result, the channel controller is answerable to the head of this executive department: Emma Swain, as of 2012. The channel direction is determined by the channel's remit, set by royal charter and the corporation's governing body (the BBC
BBC
Trust), and by the channel controller. In October 2013, following the departure of Richard Klein from the controllership, the management of the channel changed, with the role of Controller of BBC
BBC
Four scrapped: from this point the Controller of BBC
BBC
Two would have ultimate oversight of BBC
BBC
Four as part of their role, absorbing some of the former duties of the Controller of BBC
BBC
Four, but a new 'Channel Editor' post, reporting up to this controller, would be created to take day-to-day charge of Four. The controllers of BBC
BBC
Four from 2002-2016 have been:

2002–2004: Roly Keating 2004–2008: Janice Hadlow[6] 2008–2013: Richard Klein[7] 2013–2014: Janice Hadlow (as Controller of BBC
BBC
Two and BBC
BBC
Four) "on an interim basis"[8] - Hadlow had been Controller of BBC
BBC
Two since departing BBC
BBC
Four in 2008 Early 2014: Adam Barker (interim Controller of BBC
BBC
Two and BBC
BBC
Four following Janice Hadlow's departure to a new post)[9] 2014–2016: Kim Shillinglaw (as Controller of BBC
BBC
Two and BBC Four)[10]

Channel Editors of BBC
BBC
Four have been:

2013–present: Cassian Harrison[11]

BBC
BBC
Four has an annual budget of £54.3 million.[3] On 20 January 2016, Kim Shillinglaw announced that she had decided to leave the BBC
BBC
as the Controller of BBC
BBC
Two & BBC
BBC
Four. As a result of the reorganisation, the post of Controller BBC
BBC
Two and Four will close after her departure later in 2016.[12] BBC

On 16 July 2013, the BBC
BBC
announced that a high-definition (HD) simulcast of BBC
BBC
Four would be launched by early 2014.[13] The channel launched on 10 December 2013, and rolled out nationwide up to June 2014 (as will BBC
BBC
News HD and CBeebies
CBeebies
HD).[14] The channel broadcasts on the BBC's new HD multiplex on Freeview and shares its stream with CBeebies
CBeebies
HD as they both air at different times. Prior to launch, the majority of BBC
BBC
Four's HD output was broadcast on the BBC
BBC
HD channel before its closure on 26 March 2013. Programming[edit] Main article: List of programmes broadcast by the BBC

BBC
BBC
Four's primary role is to reflect a range of UK and international arts, music and culture. It should provide an ambitious range of innovative, high quality programming that is intellectually and culturally enriching, taking an expert and in-depth approach to a wide range of subjects. —  BBC

The first evening's BBC
BBC
Four programmes were simulcast on BBC
BBC
Two.[1] BBC
BBC
Four is notable for first showing Larry David's Seinfeld follow-up, Curb Your Enthusiasm,[15] Armando Iannucci's cutting political satire, The Thick of It, The Chaser's War on Everything, Flight of the Conchords, Mad Men
Mad Men
and Danish thriller The Killing. The channel broadcasts a mixture of art and science documentaries, vintage drama (including many rare black-and-white programmes), and non-English language productions such as films from the Artificial Eye catalogue, the French thriller Spiral and the Swedish detective series Wallander.[16] BBC
BBC
Four further supports foreign language films with its annual World Cinema Award which has been running since 2004. On weekdays at 19:00, the channel shows a 30-minute global news programme called Beyond 100 Days Monday–Thursday and an edition of World News Today
World News Today
on Fridays, simulcast with and produced by BBC
BBC
World News. Beyond 100 Days takes a Christmas break'. It screens a number of documentaries such as The Century of the Self and The Trials of Henry Kissinger. The channel is also home to many political travel shows such as Holidays in the Axis of Evil
Holidays in the Axis of Evil
which features investigative journalism. Drama
Drama
has given the channel some of its most popular programmes, with The Alan Clark
Alan Clark
Diaries (2003) and Kenneth Williams: Fantabulosa! (2006) being among the highest rated, with over 800,000 viewers. The highly acclaimed Hattie, broadcast in 2011, holds the record for BBC4's best ever consolidated ratings of 2m / 8%.[17] Before that The Curse of Steptoe brought the channel its highest audience figures, estimated as 1.41 million viewers, a 7% share of multichannel audiences between 21:00 and 22:05, based on overnight returns.[18] The official audience figures for the broadcast, including time-shifting, were later published as 1,625,000.[19] Another notable production was a live re-make of the 1953 science-fiction serial The Quatermass Experiment, adapted from the original scripts into a single, two-hour version (though on the night it, in fact, underran considerably, lasting less than 1 hour 40 minutes), broadcast on the evening of Saturday 2 April 2005. Discounting BBC
BBC
Four's previous live relays of theatrical Shakespeare
Shakespeare
productions, this was the first live made-for-television drama to be broadcast by the BBC
BBC
for twenty years. Another notable programme broadcast on BBC
BBC
Four is Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe which contains reviews of current shows, as well as stories and commentary on how television is produced. The show is presented by broadcaster Charlie Brooker. The channel is also curator and leader of the BBC
BBC
Archive project whose aim is that the BBC's television archive is re-broadcast as much as appropriate so that the Archive can be enjoyed again and not isolated.[20] Some output from BBC
BBC
Four (documentaries rather than foreign films) was for a time repeated on BBC
BBC
Two in a ' BBC
BBC
Four on Two' branded area, although this was often in a late night broadcast slot after Newsnight
Newsnight
and has since been discontinued. According to BARB
BARB
the comedy panel game QI has the highest ratings of any show on BBC
BBC
Four.[21] At the Edinburgh International Television Festival, BBC
BBC
Four won the Non-Terrestrial Channel of the Year award in 2004, 2006 and 2012. In 2012 Dirk Gently became the first continuing drama series produced for the channel.[22] BBC
BBC
Four is occasionally used to show live sports coverage. The channel aired additional games from the UEFA Euro 2016
UEFA Euro 2016
football tournament, and temporarily extended its broadcast hours to show live action from the 2016 Summer Olympics.[23] Programmes[edit] Original programmes[edit]

Presentation[edit] Main articles: BBC
BBC
Four idents and History of BBC
BBC
television idents The channel's initial series of idents were generated dynamically reflecting the frequencies of the continuity announcers' voice or of backing music and were designed by Lambie-Nairn. As a result, no two idents were ever the same. The first continuity announcer was Zeb Soanes. When the channel first started airing, it used the slogan "Everyone Needs A Place To Think", but the BBC
BBC
stopped using this several months after the launch. However the BBC
BBC
Four logo and above slogan can be found, engraved on benches along the South Bank
South Bank
in London, between the London Eye and Waterloo Bridge. On 10 September 2005, the channel began showing new idents comprising a central BBC
BBC
Four logo surrounded by four quadrants which show different stages of the same footage thus making for a sort of optical illusion; for example, a swimming pool where a person on an inflatable ring appears in the bottom-left corner, though ripples don't enter the remaining quarters. Although the image appears as one at the start of the ident, by the end it is clearly four separate images. See also[edit]
