Heston's new Channel 4 series: Mission Impossible

Heston Blumenthal is to star in a new Channel 4 series in which he takes on British Airways, the NHS, Cineworld Cinemas and The Royal Navy in an attempt to solve their culinary problems.

The first episode of Heston's Mission Impossible will be shown on Channel 4 on 22 February at 9pm and will see the three-Michelin-starred chef try to persuade hospital bosses and staff at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool against the use of processed fast food.

Another episode will see Blumenthal examine the challenge of serving food to 100,000 airline passengers a day at 35,000ft, working with British Airways cabin crew members Jackie Simister and Simon Curley, as well as Steve Walpole, the airline's development chef, at the airline's longhaul catering supplier, Gate Gourmet, to develop a meal that tastes as good in the air as it does on the ground.
