Channel 4 Greenlights ‘Go Back To Where You Came From’ Social Experiment

Channel 4 Greenlights ‘Go Back To Where You Came From’ Social Experiment Format

Channel 4 has given the green light to Go Back To Where You Came From, a provocative social experiment show where participants experience the harrowing routes refugees take to reach the UK. Adapted from an Australian format, the series, produced by Minnow Films, will immerse individuals with varying opinions on immigration into dire circumstances starting in Mogadishu, Somalia, and Raqqa, Syria.

Participants will endure poverty and navigate dangerous migrant routes through Africa, the Middle East, and Europe to reach the UK. These experiences are designed to challenge and potentially shift their views on immigration. This commission is particularly timely, given the fervent debate around UK immigration policies under the new Labour government.

Anna Miralis and Madonna Benjamin from Channel 4 described the program as “an extremely bold commission that continues to reinforce the Channel’s commitment to tackling difficult and highly relevant subject matter.” The network has also ordered second seasons of The Jury: Murder Trial, Top Guns: Inside the RAF, and To Catch a Copper.

‘The Inishowen Mysteries’ Adaptation In The Works

Andrea Carter’s The Inishowen Mysteries books are being adapted into a mini-series, thanks to a collaboration between Canada’s Neshama Entertainment and Ireland’s Zanzibar Films. The books, which have garnered a significant following, revolve around Benedicta ‘Ben’ O’Keefe, a determined yet reserved solicitor managing the northernmost law practice in Ireland’s Inishowen peninsula.

The narrative is rich with legal drama and thrilling crime, set against the stunning backdrop of Donegal’s unique landscape. The latest book in the series, Death Writes, was published last year.

The mini-series will be a joint production effort led by Arnie Zipursky from Neshama Entertainment and Edwina Forkin from Zanzibar Films, with Ralph Christians also producing. Zipursky expressed enthusiasm about the project, stating, “We’re excited to be teaming up with Edwina and Ralph on Andrea Carter’s popular Inishowen book series. From its captivating blend of legal intrigue and thrilling crime to its otherworldly Irish landscape, Inishowen promises to be a bold new drama series. We’re thrilled to have such strong creative partners along for the ride.”
