Searchlights – Crystal Palace Digital switchover
Crystal Palace transmitter lights up the night sky as it broadcasts analogue signal for the last time after 56 years
The 719ft-high tower shone like a beacon over south London as it marked the end of an era following the biggest digital switchover yet.
The mother of all transmitters, which reaches a fifth of the country’s TV sets all by itself, will continue to broadcast signals – but only digital ones from now on.
The 219m tall Crystal Palace broadcast tower is illuminated to mark the switch from analogue to digital television, bringing to an the end the 75 years that the antenna has been broadcasting the analogue signal.

Waterscreen on The Thames for Watchmen
A 70-foot high image of the comic book character Dr Manhattan appeared out of the Thames last night using the world’s biggest water screen projector.
Dr Manhattan, the blue skinned, super-powered being beloved of all Watchmen fans towered above the crowds who’d gathered on the river bank in central London to see the event.
The water screen was moored in the middle of the Thames between the London Eye and The Shell Building to create an vertical screen of water that extended to 72 feet in height and 100 feet across.
Specially created Watchmen footage was projected onto the screen to show Dr Manhattan’s gigantic translucent and shimmering form.
The one-off spectacle was created to promote the big screen adaptation of the 1986 comic book series Watchmen.
