Title: Going ‘behind the scenes’ in Paralympic Production: Channel 4 and the broadcasting of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games
Channel 4 – the UK’s official Paralympic broadcaster – aimed to give the Paralympic Games a fresh new look through their challenging and innovate broadcasting strategy and marketing campaigns. This session provides an insight into the production decisions taken by Channel 4 in the broadcasting and marketing of the Games from London 2012 to Rio 2016, giving you a unique insight into the ‘behind the scenes’ of Paralympic production. The findings are based on a two year BU research project that is the first study of its kind to explore the production of the Paralympics and the wider impact on public attitudes toward disability.
