I remember the Telpro sets, I saw a couple of them in the late 80's. I will try and dig out the photo to see if anyone can ID the set we had as it's always intrigued me. It had a fault with the line hold which only showed up from cold in the morning (when I wanted to watch cartoons), finally locked after 20 minutes or so and stayed fine all day after that, even when switched off for a while. The repair men couldn't locate it as it always behaved when the engineer called and in the end my dad got fed up and sent it back.

I don't think it was a Decca, but I may not have seen all the variants.
