Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Channel 4 Racing is the name given to the horse racing coverage on the British television's Channel 4. The first transmission of racing on the channel was on 22 March 1984 from Doncaster, as it took over midweek coverage which had previously been on ITV. On 5 October 1985 it took over ITV's Saturday afternoon coverage when World of Sport finished. From the beginning of 1986, however, the amount of racing covered, especially on Saturday afternoons, was substantially reduced, and not until the late 1990s would it reach the scale it had enjoyed when it was on ITV. When Channel 4 was a co-owner of the At the Races satellite channel, that brand was also used on Channel 4's horse racing coverage, but when At The Races was sold to Sky, the Channel 4 Racing brand was restored. Following the transfer, live coverage was produced by a consortium called 3on4 Productions. It is now produced by Highflyer Productions, who also produce Racing UK's live coverageshow more
