In August 2012, Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK joined forces to launch a British version of ‘Stand Up To Cancer’. This consisted of a season of factual, entertainment and health programming building up to a live telephone event on Friday 19 October 2012. Jay Hunt, Chief Creative Officer of Channel 4, says: “Sadly most of us – more than 1 in 3 – will be touched by cancer at some point in our lives. Stand Up To Cancer is about doing what Channel 4 does best – focusing attention on an important issue using entertainment and comedy. We hope to raise vital funds for trials that could save lives.” Following the success, channel 4 made plans for a second Stand up to cancer for 2014.
