Vice President of Production Flextech/Telewest

Responsible for all original production generated for the Flextech bouquet of channels (which included Living, Bravo, Trouble and Challenge). He produced programming for the Flextech/BBC joint venture channels, UK Gold etc. Under the banner of Flextech Productions the department offered its services as a production company entering into co-production projects with Channel 5, Channel 4 and the BBC. Because of the volume of programming required by the channels he was also responsible for employing, briefing and monitoring independent production companies (e.g. Wall to Wall, Endemol, Bazal, Tiger Aspect and Rapido).

Arch managed the launch of channels for Flextech and oversaw channel relaunches.

He was in charge of Telewest local programming and responsible for Flextech’s production facilities which included a multi channel digital broadcast facility servicing Poland (this ultimately was taken over by UPC/Canal +).

Arch also managed a broadcast standard television studio complex which provided facilities to the industry.

Within his remit was the enhancement of programming to meet the needs of the broadband digital age. Any programming undertaken was designed with web support and, where possible, an interactive capability via the screen and sms technologies.
