Channel 4: industry leaders have signed up to open letter opposing privatisation

On this week's Campaign podcast, Campaign's technology and gaming editor Simon Gwynn, media editor Arvind Hickman and senior reporter Fayola Douglas discuss the potential privatisation of Channel 4, which the ad industry this week expressed its opposition to in an open letter organised by Campaign.

Simon, Arvind and Maisie kick off the show by discussing the latest developments as the consultation on Channel 4 came to a close, as well as the broadcaster's groundbreaking Black to Front initiative.

They then move onto the latest tribulations of another TV company, GB News, before discussing what's happening at London Fashion Week, which started on 16 September.

The trio then share their views on three major campaigns to have launched in recent weeks: Asda's "Get the Asda price feeling", the International Paralympic Committee's "#WeThe15", and the Royal Navy's "Raj's story".
