Spare a thought for BBC2's last day, today 3rd April 2012, on analogue from Crystal Palace on channel 33. This was the UK's first UHF TV programme starting on 21 April 1964 (a power cut disrupted the official opening night on 20 April).

So, channel 33's 48 years beats BBC1's 39 years (1946 - 1985) on the old VHF channel 1 from AlexP & CcystalP, not counting the 1936 - 39 pre-war years, of course. Technology moves on!
