Here's a tall order:
In the (excellent) film drama 'Hell Drivers' (1957), the hero, played by Stanley Baker, visits a shop in Brentford High Street. As he crosses the road, a next-door radio shop can be made out, with a pile of BBC-only TV sets outside, presumably 'to clear'.
Does anyone recognise the shop?

Hope it has not been mentioned before but can anyone remember the name of the electronics shop at the end of Hoe St, Walthamstow? It was just a few yards from the "Bell" pub which has survived unlike the shop.
Bought all the components for my earliest projects there around 1967.

Default Bill's Vintage Radio

Does anyone remember Bill's Vintage Radio in Wimbledon? He operated from home and my last contact was nearly 20 years ago. Does anyone know
Bill's surname and whether he is still around?

Hello, I lived in Wimbledon from 1986 to about 1996 and had not heard of him.

Forum member John Wakeley ("Heater Cathode Short") had a shop in Collier's Wood or thereabouts, so may know the answer: http://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/s...2&postcount=38

Can you recall where in Wimbledon he was?

Nick.
