A digital divide

For many a year I have appreciated the possibility of switching on the BBC World News television channel. Since settling in Munich my viewing has amounted to only about three hours in an average week. 

As of today, however, it will drop to zero! My cable provider no longer gives access to analogue channels and my old television set cannot handle digital transmissions. It would be the perfect time to upgrade to the big ultra high definition 4K receiver I cannot possibly afford!

How fortunate that my main news and current affairs source is not television, but BBC Radio Four
