Saturday TV services will be disrupted

There's going to be disruption to terrestrial TV services in the Isle of Man over the weekend.

Engineers will be carrying out essential works on the Douglas transmitter which means BBC 1 and 2, ITV and Channels 4 and 5 will be off-air for a time.

It's scheduled to take place starting at 10 on Saturday morning, but will be dependant on the weather.

There will also be a shorter shut-down on Sunday as well.

The man in charge of aerials at the BBC is Tom Everest, and he says carrying out work on the Island is much easier than elsewhere:
