Same here. Never saw a G8, only the G11. Must have been super reliable.

They were the run-out model so had all the mods done - contrast that with the Pye hybrid which got worse as production went on! They were also fairly thin on the ground unlike the ubiquitous 22" 550.
The Pye solid state 20" was nothing special but having a 90 degree CRT (A51-220X) was far more reliable than their big brothers. Again, thin on the ground as a few extra pounds bought you a 22" version.
I vaguely remember a 20" T20 now you mention it - it was the first one I saw with the unusual final anode location.
