Certain parts of the island (walking distance of ferry terminals) are already enjoying TV programmes in colour by virtue of the popular videocassette loan scheme.
and each set comes with two coathangers as standard.
..is the IoW is going to be stuffed when the BBC stop broadcasting on LW?
5 of them * things anyway.
And how pray are IoW residents to fuel TV sets or watch Betamax videocassettes when they havent even found a way of transporting electricity through the Solent yet?
