On Wednesday, 4th April, BBC2 ceased to exist as a terrestrial channel, and so began many different exhibitions and projects around the country, which are now currently riding a band wagon that holds onto a nostalgia for pre-digital television.

The one that we had our eye on was the 'End of BBC 2 Party', put on at Hackey's Russet Gallery by Final Broadcast Collective. It was a tongue-in-cheek send off for the channel, complete with a coffin for BBC2 and a eulogy given by the show's organiser, Max Dovey. The most poignant moment of this eulogy was when a small child appeared at the front of the crowd and looked up at Max, who looked back at her and said, "Yes, no more BBC2", causing the child to run off crying and the crowd to let out an "AAWWW".

Other mini-events within this event included a lecture given by Chris Lane about the location of Crystal Palace Park as the first broadcasting station, using the dinosaur sculptures in the park as a metaphor for the style of broadcasting from the past.

As well as this, three pseudo-newsreaders, dated and Anchorman-style in appearance, collected information from the viewers of the gallery concerning what they saw at the show in terms of the digital switchover and what it meant to them. At the end of the night this information was fed onto an autocue and read by the news team as a live, unspoilt broadcast.

The Final Broadcast exhibition is open at to view at the Russet Gallery for the duration of the digital switchover and will have a closing event on 18th April, including a course of TV Dinners and more performances responding to the end of the analogue era.
