Talking Pictures falls off the air after a power cut

Vintage film fans were temporarily unable to watch Talking Pictures on Wednesday.

The channel has confirmed a power failure was to blame for the outage, which resulted in blank screens across the UK.

Freeview/YouView, Sky, Freesat and Virgin Media customers were all affected by the loss of programming.

The broadcaster has confirmed that the service on Freeview/YouView channel 81 was the first to return, with other platforms following later in the day.
