Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem

Without the model number it would be difficult to be specific but if it is as old as a crt/picture tube tv then it is too old to pickup any digital programming and as far as i know the UK also went all digital some 6 years ago.

This means that you would need a small digital to analog tuner/converter box between the tv`s audio/video inputs and antenna or cable you have for signal.

Again ,if you want more details let me have the tv`s model number on the back cover , otherwise If that answers your question please do not forget to rate by clicking on the star icons at the top of your page, then click on Submit so i get paid for my time helping you .
