One of my least favourite vintage TV moments was when I wanted to remove the tube on the Baird T5 discovered in the cellar at BBC Wood Norton in the early 1980s. This had an o/c heater.

The tube neck was jammed tight inside whatever went round it. I had no choice but to grab the huge bulb bodily and H-E-A-V-E it upwards as hard as I could, hopefully not straining it where it joined the neck.

Fortunately, it moved! (Yes I wore goggles just in case.)
