HC Deb 27 November 2002 vol 395 c261W
Mr. Gibb

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many advertisements for Freeview have been broadcast on(a) BBC television and (b) BBC radio; and if she will make a statement. [81778]

Dr. Howells

The BBC has not broadcast any advertisements for Freeview on either its radio or television services, but between 4 November and 20 November, it broadcast 70 information trails about its digital services on BBC One and BBC Two and around 170 on its five national radio networks. These trails inform viewers that the BBC's digital services can be accessed on Freeview, but also make clear that they are available on the digital satellite and digital cable platforms.
