The Golden Age of Trams is repeated tonight on BBC4 at 8pm till 9pm.

Well worth a watch if you missed the earlier transmission in the week.

Digital TV... the way of the future... My butt !
All it needs is some kid to come screaming past my house on his 'chicken chaser' and my tv signal goes bananas !
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

I have a signal booster I used before getting a new aerial, if you want you can borrow that to see if it makes any difference.

I have a booster already, but I'm trying to save on electrickery so I haven't plugged it in.
As long as I can get the Big Bang Theory and American Football I'm happy. :-)

It should get a lot better fairly soon. As the remaining analogue gets turned off the power will get turned up more in many areas where right now its artificially low to avoid interference problems with other bits of the UK.

I keep meaning to check if the satelite socket they fitted in my flat is actually connected. If so I'll get a freesat box with more channels than freeview.

I didn't.

Lots of Europe kept some - Visit Zagreb and you can still experience 'Tram jams' - they never ripped their system out merely upgraded it and the result is a big 15 line network.
