Channel 4 has enlisted three matriarchs born in 1918 to take up the role of continuity announcer, in celebration of 100 years since (some) British women were granted the vote.
In a set of films created by the broadcaster’s in-house agency 4Creative, Millie, Beattie and Margaret recall their memories from the early 20th century from a comfy armchair, before introducing their assigned TV show.
Extended versions of their interviews will go out across Channel 4’s social media platforms alongside the hashtag #Vote100. The first spot from Millie will introduce the fitting screening of the film Suffragette tomorrow (4 February).
