E4 does not usually show documentaries, its more based on American programmes More4 usually shows documentaries that have been on Channel 4 first, so it would probably be shown on More 4 a year after Channel 4, much like 4Seven. Other sister channels of Channel 4 do not show documentaries at all – they are music based
Time On TVWe have decided to show our documentary at 8:00 PM- This is because our documentary will not consist of any inappropriate footage or language.-- It is suitable for the whole family to watch.-- People usually finally finish their work and sit down to watch television around this time.-- 7:00 PM is too early and the number of viewers wont be very high.-- 9:00 PM is a popular spot filled up by the programmes that are regularly watched by viewers.-- Therefore viewers will be less likely to miss their shows for our documentary.
