We’ve been busy here at Channel4.com. (When I say we… well, you know what I mean.)
Wednesday saw the first airing on Channel 4 of ‘a brand new reality’ – Seven Days – which follows the lives of some intriguing characters living in London’s Notting Hill. Here’s one of the more intriguing, Malcolm, recounting the unusual fate of his favourite cat.
“And I put him in the fridge on his favourite pillow, and I covered him in roses, and I went away for two and a half years…” As I say, intriguing.
This unique documentary series aims to allow viewers to influence what happens not only on their screeens, but in real life.
So how on earth is that supposed to work? Luckily, someone who knows something about it had the foresight to make this handy guide…
A brand new episode of Seven Days airs on Wednesday at 10pm, and if your own real life has the temerity to clash with the Channel 4 schedule, you can always catch up on 4oD.
For those of you still getting over the images of Malcolms ‘house party’ at the end of the show – please don’t have nightmares. Instead, distract yourself with a visit to our spanking new Channel 4 News site, which launched on Monday with a new design, improved navigation and search functionality.
Alongside breaking news, blogs and special reports, the site has launched a competition to find the best young news blogger in the UK.
Technophiles should note that all the video on the new site can now be played back on iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) and the latest Android OS, so you can keep up to speed when you’re on the move.
And if the latest phone technology is up your street, or even if it isn’t, look out for the brand new series of the hilarious PhoneShop, coming soon to E4. More news on this next time, but in the meantime check out this preview.
This series is definitely worth watching. Trrrusssst me.
