Would still be nice to get TCW overnight to allow us to set up our receivers, as so many TFT tellies seem to come with a really crappy set of default factory settings.
you do know you can download a hi-def testcard onto a DVD disc and play on the tv. Also there's a movie you can download a movie that flashes black and white really quickly that can help revive dead pixels on LCD displays, works on phones, psp's etc. A quick google search would do.

They should do what they do with BBC3 and 4, just put up a caption saying:

'BBC Two is back at 6.00am'

Will News Channel still be on 1 or 2 overnight after DSO?, as everyone will be able to watch it.

This is the BBC we are talking about. Remember, these are the clowns who spent £700,000 of taxpayers (sorry, license payers) money on a station clock for the "Rhythm and Movement" BBC1 idents which you may think as not so bad, until you find out they never even used the damn thing.

The clock cost £700,000? I heard it was just the balloon clock with a different background, so I'd be very, very surprised!

Would you mind sharing your source for this claim with us?

They may not actually be serious. But it wouldn't surprise me if it was true.

Read the bit in the bottom paragraph of the intro.

EDIT: After reading it through again, I think it says £700,000 for the whole ident package. Sorry.
