SKY INTRODUCE NEW BIOGRAPHY CHANNEL

BRITISH Sky Broadcasting (BskyB) and the Arts and Entertainment Television Network (A&E) have announced the arrival of The Biography Channel in the UK.
The channel, which is dedicated to the lives of famous people, will launch on Sky’s digital platform on October 1.
The Biography Channel will acquire much of its contents from A&E, as they own the 'Biography' brand and the associated series. The series now contains more than 800 titles and is among the most popular History Channel strands currently airing in the UK.
Many programmes acquired from A&E, will be reformatted and re-narrated for the British market. Other related programming material is to be acquired from British rights owners such as BBC Worldwide and Granada Media.
The new channel will feature a wide variety of biographical subjects and the envisaged first quarter schedule includes portraits of Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Ella Fitzgerald, Dudley Moore, Harrison Ford, Joan Collins, The Rat Pack, Pele, Bobby Charlton, Hugh Henfer, Bill Gates, Pablo Escobar and Jerry Springer.
