THE number of people enjoying black and white TV in Warrington has dropped with only 25 homes owning TV licences.

Today just 11,550 black and white licences remain in force across the UK, dropping a further 12 per cent in the last year.

Iain Logie Baird, associate curator at the National Media Museum and grandson of television inventor John Logie Baird said: “Despite more than 25 million people opting for a colour TV licence in the UK, it may be some time before the black and white television disappears completely from our living rooms.

“The National Media 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.”
