Report on digital TV criticised

- Gavin Davies, the Goldman Sachs chief economist who headed a recent review of the BBC's funding, has launched a scathing attack on commercial broadcasters who have argued that a digital licence fee would damage the take up of digital TV. He was referring specifically to a report, commissioned by the commercial companies, who warned of a £5bn threat to television businesses if viewers were forced to pay an extra levy. Davies said that the report's conclusions were "substantially exaggerated".
