The BBC will launch its long-awaited highbrow channel, BBC 4, with the only televised performance in Europe of singer Bjork's current tour, writes Georgina Lipscomb.
Filmed at the Royal Opera House last Sunday (16 December) by Endemol UK production arm Initial, a 90-minute version of Bjork's concert will air when the channel launches in March.

The concert was commissioned by former controller of arts commissioning and digital channels Roly Keating who was last week confirmed as head of BBC 4.

The concert marked the first time a pop star had performed at the Royal Opera House and showcased Bjork's new album, Vespertine. It was produced by Jacqui Edenbrow and directed by David Barnard. The Big Events Company has international rights to the concert.
