Chancellor Gordon Brown is rushing forward plans to switch off existing analogue TV broadcasts in just five years to reap a £45 billion windfall from selling the wavelengths to mobile phone companies. According to financial press reports, the year 2006 has been unofficially set as the date for the switchover to begin. A full announcement will be made later this year.

If this is the case, it opens up a whole can of worms.
