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

I've heard of the title but not seen it.

In another series someone finds a time capsule with a Sonv pocket radio inside, & asked if that's what Sony used to be called.

It's common for products in Japanse media to have the brand names changed slightly.

On Saturday evening I was watching the '6.5 special' film via a recently acquired Blu-Ray Disc, and I'm sure that in at least one scene featuring Diane Todd as 'Anne', there was an Ever Ready Sky King portable radio prominently visible. In 1958, when the film was both made and set, we had the similar Sky Queen. Bulky, heavy things to carry around, but transistor portables were new and expensive items back then!

Watching an episode (Flight to Jawani) of 'It ain't half hot mum', and one scene shows a control tower communicating with a flying fortress. As below. I've no idea what the equipment shown is.
