Channel 5 is the UK’s third-largest commercial channel, with a diverse schedule spanning documentaries, popular factual series, accessible and engaging history, inclusive entertainment and reality, scripted shows and acclaimed children’s and news content. 

Through agenda-driving commissions, Channel 5 reflects life in modern Britain, tackling societal issues from inequality to inner-city gang life, homelessness to mental health.

Recent highlights include the world-exclusive Michael Palin in North Korea; dramas 15 DaysBlood, and Agatha and the Truth of Murder; Critical Condition and the Bafta-nominated Operation Live; and new hits Our Yorkshire Farm and Warship: Life at Sea

The channel recently won both its first Bafta and Channel of the Year at the Edinburgh Television Awards.

The smallest of the main terrestrial channels, Channel 5 continues to punch above its weight, delivering true public service broadcasting that enriches and enhances the television landscape.
