Channel 4 to air special 90-minute Dispatches investigation on Saturday night

Channel 4 will air a special investigation on their Dispatches programme on Saturday evening.

The 90-minute documentary will air at 9pm on the channel – but no information has been released about its content.

Channel 4 presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy sparked debate on social media over the potential focus of the investigation after cryptically tweeting a screenshot of the programme with the caption: “Something’s up.”

A link to the programme comes up with a message reading: “That page cannot be found. Either the address is incorrect or the page is no longer available.”

The show will be repeated on Channel 4 on Sunday at 10.50pm.

Radio Times magazine only carries a generic description of the programme in its listing, reading: “Dispatches - Investigation series covering issues in British society, politics, international current affairs, health, religion and the environment.”

Recent episodes of the series have investigated Sri Lanka’s Easter bombings in 2019 and the crisis of long waits for emergency NHS care.

The Standard has contacted Channel 4 for comment.
