    Well, its finally (and slowly!) happening - the first analogue switchover to digital, and its starting in my home town of whitehaven!

    Watching sky news before with some great views of the harbour, and my friend in a red top working in the tv shop!! Cool! And those bloody awful cumbrian accents!! Sorry, but I know I sound awful!

    Anyway, if it ever comes up in a pub quiz question, I'll be sure to remember where the first switchover happened!

    Onwards and upwards!

    I think as it was BBC2 they switched off most people will live without it for now, bet the elec retailers are making a killing these next couple of weeks.
