I was always fascinated with that machine hidden in his desk, and Herbert Lom's character was Dr Corder, an association of words I've never forgotten.

I spotted this radio in the 1944 film The Halfway House. Does anyone recognise the model?

A perennial christmas favourite, in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), the Bucket household sports a rare 1935 Loewe-Opta FE-B. Nice to see a real object in a film full of prop machines!

I've seen it suggested that this set had a modern monitor stuck inside it, but it's still impressive that they found such an old set.

Probably the wrong thread, but did anybody notice the BBC news footage of Claire O'Neal on the Today programme? There she is, speaking into a 4038 ribbon on an old BBC table stand with a pop shield. Nothing wrong with that, quite the reverse, but I thought domestic radio had abandoned the 4038 long since. Full marks to some SM for using appropriate technology.

In the latest TV series of Endeavour I noted he had a different record player, can any one identify it?

I have to admit that I don't often take in what make or model of TV, Radio, or what have you is featured in a TV program or film I'm watching. Sometimes, if it's the same as or similar to, anything I used to own, I may do so, but not otherwise.

Morse's new record player is a Bush SRP31, thank god! He had a succession of very poor quality machines in the previous series, just as in the original "Morse" he never seemed to have the same transistor on his desk, but had various Fidelity RAD series sets. Funny that, I'd have thought he would have had a Hacker.

I obviously watch far too much tv.

Indeed a Hacker, some did make their way past the outskirts of Maidenhead (Oxford). Mind you a serious music enthusiast doesn't really care upon what it is played on.

Attached image of a TK 30 captured on my TV a few nights back when it was in the 1959 Norman Wisdom film "Follow a Star".

I have a TK 30 which needs looking at, as soon as I can fit it in.

That's right.
We just look at the dots. Sounds perfect every time!

Spotted a couple of radios in 'The Pale Horse' on TV recently, can anyone identify them?

First one's a Pye Piper

and the other's another Pye, their stereo projection record player.

DAC10 on Bargain Hunt (BBC1 TV)
 
"Expert" said it was 1930's Deco! The punters paid £30 and it sold at auction for £30. Looked a bit mucky.

It does to my eye have an Art Deco style, it was introduced in 1950, I donít know the designer but it is was a couple of years later that younger designers started to influence styles.
Not to worry, itís only a TV show.

Re: DAC10 on Bargain Hunt (BBC1 TV)
 
Perhaps not a bad thing to see sets changing hands at sensible prices, regardless of any inaccuracies in the rest of the program?

A couple of nights ago, the first of the two episodes of "Life on Mars" (set in 1973) showed some remote control TV's . I am not familiar with sets of that era but they looked appropriate.
