Until last week, that is, when my little sister bought some vast piece of Japanese electric wallpaper and left her old one here. It's an old Sony Trinitron but it still works fine. So I went out on New Year's Day and bought a cheap Freeview box and an internal aerial. Didn't work. We're in a shady bit signal wise and that's not helped by having a large wood opposite either. Still, we eventually fixed something up with an old aerial and I got some limited telly in. Mainly ITV, Sky 3 and Dave. Hardly any BBC except BBC4 and Parliament. What is it with that station? However shite your reception is, you can always get BBC Parliament in. In Crewe, the previous incumbents had pointed their aerial towards Sutton Coldfield, 70 miles away instead of Manchester, 30 miles away in the opposite direction. When I attached a Freeview box all I could get in was bloody BBC Parliament. Tonight, it was like watching an extended Norman Collier sketch. You kn.. Th. ne wher. .e ....tends the micr....ne isn'. wor..ng. F..k. I wante. t. wa.ch Tag..rt. I think the wind might be the cause. And maybe this.
