Date for London switchover released

Digital UK has announced that Analogue Switch Off in London will commence on the 4th April 2012 and be completed by the 18th April.
It is 75 years since analogue television broadcasts began in the capital, where the world’s first regular television service began in 1936, and Digital UK marked the event with a spectacular lightshow at Alexandra Palace from where the initial transmissions were made.
