Black and white TV sets still used in Keighley

First published in News

Less than 15 homes in Keighley now have black and white television sets, new figures reveal.

TV Licensing spokesman, Paul Williams, said: “Today’s figures show that even in the digital age, some people still like to watch their favourite programmes on black and white televisions.

“It’s important that no matter how you watch live TV, you’re correctly licensed to do so.”

A black and white licence costs £49, compared to £145.50 for colour.

Iain Logie Baird – associate curator of the National Media Museum in Bradford, and grandson of television inventor John Logie Baird – said: “The museum has hundreds of black and white television sets in its collection, and there will always be a small group of people who prefer monochrome images, collect vintage sets or just don’t want to throw away a working piece of technology.”
