Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay, Heritage Minister commented: "The Channel 4 building on Horseferry Road is among the finest examples of a building in the High Tech style for which Lord Rogers of Riverside and his great British partnership became internationally renowned.

Just as we have recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of Channel 4, I am delighted that this building has been listed so that it can continue to be admired and enjoyed by future generations."

Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive of Historic England, added: "Television has had an enormous impact on our national life since the 1930s, but the Channel 4 headquarters is one of only a few buildings purposely designed for the industry’s needs. It is architecturally fascinating, as well as having great historic interest for its connection to Channel 4, which has been a major contributor to our cultural landscape since being set up as a publicly owned channel in 1982. Listing recognises this impressive building and protects it for the future."
