Default What do you call it ?

Yes I have a Cossor 935 of 1954 a very strange beast.

Sadly not easy to share pictures of it at the moment but I can share the sales lit pics and a general view

Cheers

Seems Cossor called it a Tele-Autogram.

Cheers

Lots of manufacturers made similar offerings in the 50s. They were expensive and impractical, so didn't sell well. There seems to have been a lack of understanding that TVs and radiograms were fundamentally different things.

The Cossor looks like a lovely piece of furniture - until you try to find a place for it your living room. The Nordmende looks a bit more practical. As Paul says they are fundamentally different things, and would you really want to afford all three at the same time.

Pye called theirs a Slimline Trio. They made at least two models - the last one had a TV using the Pye all valve dual standard 11U chassis, circa 1963-4.
