Backlash fears over digital radio


The government could face a public backlash over its plans to switch national radio stations over to digital transmission, according to a report.

The House of Lords Communications Committee says there is 'public confusion and industry uncertainty' over the plans, and people are still buying analogue radios which will be out of date in a few years' time.

Founding Director of Digital Radio UK Andrew Harrison and the Guardian's computer editor Jack Schofield discuss whether more advice should be given to retailers and consumers.
