Charles had been responsible for the lighting design of the channel Rocks and Co in London and in 2009 the company planned to move operations to Leamington Spa near Birmingham. In conjunction with the Architects and Transmission/Installation Engineers, Charles designed and installed all the lighting for the new studio. Much of the success of the Channel is attributed to the photographic "look" and presentation of the programmes.  Programming can be seen on Freeview and Channel 666 on Sky or via the web
