No, "channel 4" is "channel 4". I remember it first airing and it was  
literally the 4th UK television channel; after BBC1, BBC2 and ITV (by  
your region) on the dial.

It is available on satellite & FTV, but appears to be encrypted:
   (section: 12168 V, tp 24, SR 27500, FEC 2/3
    whatever all that means - it's about 5/6 of the way down)

The "Alternative Queen's Speech" (first given by, Quentin Crisp, an  
apparently-famous homosexual) is traditionally shown at the same time  
as the Queen's Speech <http://tinyurl.com/ydr4h6>. We therefore  
appear to have missed it <http://tinyurl.com/ybyvh7> (my laptop is  
very slow today, otherwise I might have posted in time); there's  
usually a repeat late at night, but I am unable to immediately find  
it listed.
