Why is SETI unlikely to ever find ET?

 “A top alien-hunting boffin has said that current efforts seeking extraterrestrial intelligent life are unlikely ever to work – not because there couldn’t be any aliens out there, but because the methods themselves are wrong. He proposes several radical new means of finding out whether we really are alone in the universe.”

Currently we search for extraterestrial life with radio telescopes but have not found any reliable signals. The problem is that the leakage from our TV and radio broadcasts is in all directions and will be very weak (particularly now we are using digital transmissions).
