Authoritative sources on WWW appear to indicate the forced switch-off of analogue and consequent hassle and expense for people re digital was caused by an oversight of the government project team in allocating bandwidth and frequencies for the olympics and so forth to overseas media and security purposes. The trusty old analogue gets given to them and the fee paying public get aeroplane disturbance, high pressure "inversion" and a headache if someone uses DIY tools between the transmitter and aerial.

Then of course you could catch analogue virtually anywhere but digital needs a full on unfettered path or it's patchwork city on the tv screen.

Then there was a paper written by the scottish parliament outlining how lucrative digital would be for politics and councils.

I do hope the powers that be will solve all the issues so everyone will be able to enjoy the tv/radio as enjoyed during the rusty old but fully working analogue days.
