Default Re: Vintage Radios, TVs etc in films and on TV (not anachronisms)

That was common when I was a lad, wall sockets were a lot rarer.
You could get a Y bayonet adapter to plug into the light socket so you have the lamp in and a spare socket for appliances.
We never thought of the danger of electricity in those days and 3 pin sockets with an earth connection only came along later.
Oh dear; showing my age.

Here are a couple of TV's I spotted on Some Mother's De Ave Em.

The first looks like an Indeset, probably chose to fit in with the house of the future.

The second is a Baird using a Thorn 1500 chassis going by the controls, so probably somewhere in the 88xx range.

Default Re: Technology related anachronisms on TV and in films etc.

In Passport To Pimlico there are quite a few period radios on display, along with some spoofs of Home Service announcements.

No televisions to be seen but quite a few Band I aerials in view.

I'm fairly sure this is an 8807, but can't find another picture to compare.

The nearest I could find is a DER 5807, with the controls in the same place.
