I wonder how well this 'convenience feature' generally worked? I would have thought it would be a recipe for modulation hum...

Just out of interest the Country branch of GOSH was situated at Tadworth Surrey. I was a patient there in 1959 and watched with great interest the installation of a new Ekco 21" Tv.

The small Granada colour portables were known as the 'Colourette' I don't think they were of Japanese manufacture. They contained a fair number of valves and gave a mediocre performance. I think the name SABA comes to mind but it's a long time ago. John.

They were rebadged Kuba Portacolor C211 without the VHF tuner.

Taken from a picture hanging in my workshop.

Here we see "Television as a new-born baby". The woman is looking at her husband as if she has been given an idea.

But what is the set with the Ediswan Mazda tube?

I wonder if the set in the Ediswan Mazda advert is deliberately anonymised.

Quite a lot of domestic scenes here.

Peter.

Well if you can't find it, I doubt anyone else can and we can assume it's anonymised. Thank you Peter.
