There is an interesting story behind this particular TV. It was acquired early in 2006 and the owner originally bought it from an antique shop where she lived.This particular shop had been clearing out some stuff from a house locally.The owner had owned this TV from new and was Richard Todd the actor.He was probably best known for his leading role in "The Dambusters" film but he stared in many films including "The Longest Day". During the second world war, in the British army, he did actually participate in the allied invasion of Normandy. The Antique shop was called "Aladdin’s Cave" and was in Grantham (UK) where Richard Todd lived.

The landmark Bakelite TV - the 1948 9-inch screen Bush Model TV-12. The picture above was taken at the IOV show in 2003 where Rewind Museum had a stand This set is probably the most well used example of an old TV by television and media.
It is a classic bakelite design which gets away from the box shape that televisions had in those days. This one is in very good condition and is a valued part of the museum. The TV-12 had a 9-inch screen and a single channel tuner. In 1950 the TV-22 was introduced with a 5 channel tuner (still with a 9-inch screen). it looked exactly the same as the TV-12. In 1953 Bush upgraded
the set with a 12-inch screen and that model was called the TV-24.

This set was recently donated to the museum. It had originally been purchased on the 2nd Nov 1971 from Peter Jones (John Lewis an Company Ltd.) Sloane Square, London SW1.It is an ideal addition to the museum as it is exactly the sort of 12 volt / 240 volt small TV that would have been used with the reel to reel video recorders and the early VCRs of that era (like the ones on this site). It has an 11-inch 90 degree CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) and UHF tuner. Weight 15lb and 7oz. It is complete with manufacturers packaging, guarantee card and Sony advertising pamphlet.

HMV Model 2647 1967 Dual Standard TV. VHF and UHF

This television was my own TV in the early 1970s. I bought it second hand and used it for many years. It has been stored ever since and is now part of the on-line collection.It was taken to the first IOV exhibition in 2003 when we had a stand and the public really enjoyed seeing it. Many comments were made. The service manual and a spare chassis are in the collection. During it's use in the 1970s I repaired it several times.I seem to remember problems with the system switching from 405 line VHF to the 635 line UHF being a problem as it was with many duel standard sets of the day.
