bilkoSOMEWHERE in Harlow, six houses are happily sitting down to watching black and white television.

Figures released by TV Licensing have revealed that there are still six licences in existence in Harlow.

There are now fewer than 12,000 sets now in use nationwide.

In 2000, there were 212,000 black and white licences issued. By 2003 that number had shrunk to 93,000 and then 50,000 in 2006.

Spokesperson for TV Licensing in London and the South East, Emma Cowlard said: “Today’s figures show, even in the digital age, more than 11,000 homes still watch their favourite programmes on black and white televisions.

“We may be on the brink of losing black and white sets to the history books, but older technology will always be replaced by exciting new ways of watching live. It’s important that no matter how you watch live TV, whether on a black and white set, or online, you’re correctly licensed to do so.”
