Default Re: Silvertone 6179 Radio Repair

I understand new valves are expensive and hard to find, so I would only want the bulb circuit replacing in that instance, especially as the valves are dated back to 1939 so would be a shame to lose them.
The valve heaters hopefully could have taken UK voltage for a couple of seconds moreso than the bulb or resistors.
Am I right in thinking a burnt out/failed resistor would stop the circuit to the valves and protect them if it was to fail first?
