Mini-TV in dolls house - licence needed?
I fitted one of these tiny working mini-TV sets in my daughter's dolls house. Now the dolls are receiving abusive mail from the BBC. I think the toyshop must have given the BBC their address. The BBC claim that even though the tiny dollshouse is in a corner of the sitting room inside our real house which does have a valid TV licence, it is (under the Communications Act) a seperate address, and requires its own licence. They are threatening to post a miniaturised detector van through my letter box which they will drive across my carpets to the dolls house by remote control and spy on the dolls through the tiny windows.
