Switching off

• I well remember coming home from school to find a biscuit tin-shaped box in the corner of our sitting room. It was our first television and its snowy pictures were an amazing sight. The first thing I noticed were the famous "rabbit's ears", which controlled everything. Wednesday saw the end of that era, and the last thing I saw were the famous "Rabbitte's ears", still trying to control everything.
