Original releaseT4 (Channel 4)_header_cell_0_10_0 25 October 1998 (1998-10-25) –

29 December 2012 (2012-12-29)T4 (Channel 4)_cell_0_10_1

T4 was a scheduling slot on Channel 4 (T4 Saturday usually 9 am until 2 pm) and E4 (T4 Sunday usually 9 am until 5 pm). T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_0

It also aired on weekdays in the school holidays. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_1

The slot had a separate station identification on screen graphic from Channel 4 and E4. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_2

Channel 4 originally produced the strand in-house until 2002, when production was passed onto independent companies. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_3

The slot was targeted at the 16-34 age group. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_4

Until 25 March 2012, T4 aired on Channel 4 both Saturday and Sunday. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_5

To make way for the introduction of Sunday Brunch in March 2012, T4 Sunday was later moved to run on E4. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_6

T4 Saturday remained on Channel 4 and some programmes that previously appeared within the T4 block, such as The Simpsons, remained on Channel 4 on Sunday afternoons. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_7

On 12 October 2012, Channel 4 announced that they would be axing T4 at the end of December 2012. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_8

The show ended on 29 December 2012. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_9

Early history T4 (Channel 4)_section_0

Early on in T4's run, programmes aimed at children often aired in addition to the content aimed at older viewers, with shows such as CatDog and 2 Stupid Dogs appearing in the early schedule of the strand. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_10

Around 2001, this was dropped and the strand refocused entirely towards the teen/youth market. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_11

For the first few months of T4's life, its idents consisted of an animated spaceman like character. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_12

In 1999, this character instead appeared on the idents during the early morning pre-school shows, in addition to the weekend children's programmes that fell outside the T4 strand. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_13

These idents continued in use until 2004. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_14

T4 on E4, 2001 T4 (Channel 4)_section_1

After E4's launch in 2001, T4 initially also had a slot on the channel. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_15

However, this was short lived. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_16

They also had an equally short lived Friday evening slot on Channel 4. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_17

Following the sale of Quiz Call by Channel 4, it was rumoured that a T4 channel was one of the proposals to fill the vacant slot on Freeview (and subsequently on satellite and cable). T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_18

However, the plan is also thought to have been rejected by director of television Kevin Lygo, as the slot was filled by Film4 +1 (now replaced, in turn, by Channel 4 +1). T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_19

Later years T4 (Channel 4)_section_2

Initially broadcast only on Sundays, the success of T4 saw the strand subsequently extended to include a Saturday block. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_20

In more recent years, T4 had provided Channel 4 a broadcast window of programmes that are also broadcast in primetime slots on E4, such as The Big Bang Theory. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_21

In addition, following Channel 4's acquisition of terrestrial broadcast rights to The Simpsons, the series began to feature regularly within T4. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_22

Friends featured regularly within T4 until Channel 4 relinquished the rights to the sitcom in 2011. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_23

Vernon Kay, Dermot O'Leary, Miquita Oliver and Alexa Chung returned for the last show on 29 December 2012 alongside current presenters Matt Edmondson, Nick Grimshaw, Jameela Jamil, Georgie Okell and Will Best. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_24

T4 on the Beach T4 (Channel 4)_section_3

Main article: T4 on the Beach T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_25

T4 also staged an annual summer festival, T4 on the Beach, in the resort of Weston-super-Mare (for its first two years in 2003 and 2004, it was held in Great Yarmouth under the name Pop Beach), and previous musical acts that have appeared include McFly, Calvin Harris, Little Boots, and The Zutons. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_26

The concert in July 2010 was the sixth year running that the event had taken place in Weston-super-Mare which featured Dizzee Rascal and Florence and the Machine, among others. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_27

T4 Stars of... T4 (Channel 4)_section_4

Normally bookended at the tail end of the year, T4 ‘Stars Of…’ broadcast live from Earls Court Exhibition Centre. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_28

The event was first held in 2009 and since then had become an annual fixture in the T4 events calendar. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_29

The Stars Of... title usually preceded the year in which it was being held e.g. Stars of 2010, as it was widely regarded as the replacement show for the now defunct Smash Hits Poll Winners Party that T4 broadcast from 2001 to 2005. T4 (Channel 4)_sentence_30
