Digital launch time last autumn. The TV screen keeps filling up with animated noughts and ones. It’s the BBC explaining how digital broadcasting “works” again. They used the same image in the glossy brochure they produced, BBC Digital: The Adventure Starts Here, with this helpful added explication: “Digital broadcasting uses computer technology. It converts sound and pictures into a series of digits (noughts and ones) and is transmitted through the air using modified transmitters which are then received by television aerials.” [First paragraph]
