MEDIA BRIEFS: UKTV plans specialist food channel

UKTV, the joint venture between the BBC and content provider

Flextech, plans to launch a specialist channel, UK Food, in November. It

will be up against Taste CFN, which was launched as Carlton Food Network

in 1996 and rebranded in April following the sale of a 50 per cent stake

to J Sainsbury. Taste CFN is to launch a flagship daily show with Anthea

Turner next week.
