Default "Who Done it" (1956 film)

From the "Meet Mr Lucifer" thread:

This was repeated on Talking Pictures TV recently, so I thought I'd take a look. The signs said '1956 Radio Show' and it was at Earls Court. Here are some views of the tellies. What are they?

And Rank, who distributed the film, were later to become 'Rank Bush Murphy'.

The film was released in March 1956, but I have the feeling that Radio Shows were held in October. So this could have been an imagined Radio Show of the future. Just the thing to drum up business. Who knows if similar crazy events, as seen in the film, might happen if you attended the real Radio Show!

Mr Hill provides indicators of the comedy routines which he later refined at Thames.

The mock up show has an interesting section where pictures from a camera were
displayed across a range of TVs probably fed from a common low power transmitter.
It was creditable that the film cameras were run at 25fps to avoid flicker on the
off screen shots.

I'm sure there was a mention of the filming of the mock-up in a Practical TV magazine of the time.
