This set was old even then. The set was made by a well known manufacturer.

Found the film on Youtube and watched it.
When the set is moved (and replaced with a 200 series telephone) no attempt is made to disconnect the supply and aerial cables, but fortunately the props dep't had rigged them to fall away.

Better still though were the cordless drills that could drill into concrete for "24 hours without recharging", we haven't got those in 2021!

From episode 2 of the 6th Avengers series another TV set.
Dual standard model. I think it is a Decca.

Did anyone see the Save and Remade program yesterday, Monday 5th?

A complete 1950's Pye Black Box vandalised to make a hideous looking wall mounted wine rack.

My wife wondered at the "Oh no, you can't do that' which echoed around the living room.

It was apparently working except for the end of the cartridge turn over paddle that had broken off according to the owner.

Had they no idea that this model is collectable and fetch 80-150 on ebay? Even the bits they probably binned, a working BSR Monarch deck and valve amp would have been worth 60+.

Sad day; RIP that Pye Black Box.

Luckily mine will not go that way; I have a son who appreciates the value of these items, and when I'm gone it will be found a good home.

There was a pair of 19 sets in The Champions episode 'The Fanatics' shown on TPTV tonight. The ep is available on YT, but there isn't a decent shot of them.
There is also a walkie-talkie in use by the villains early on, but all identification marks have been obscured.

Just watched a Poirot "The Affair at the Victory Ball" wonderful views inside and out of broadcasting house. An Ekco AC74 getting a lot of shots and I even spotted a Murphy Radiogram!
