Black and white TV licences in the city
Despite HD and 3D becoming part of everyday life, more than 30 homes in the city are still watching their favourite TV programmes in black and white.
Figures released today by TV Licensing reveal after nearly 46 years of colour transmissions, 104 black and white TV Licences are still in force in Cambridgeshire - with 34 in Peterborough.
Despite the historic switch to digital television last year, and an increase in the sale of flat screen televisions, tablets, laptops and smart- phones over the Christmas period, some homes in the area just cannot bear to part with their trusty black and white television sets.
Nationally, in 2000there were 212,000 black and white TV Licences issued, but at the start of 2013, just 13,202 were in force.
