      • There's a whole collection of radios during the Sunday afternnoon war of the neighbours, probably the best scene in It's Hard to be Good (1948). First is the one blaring out classical music from the garden of Jimmy Hanley's family:

        Then the loud revenge tuned in from an gurning old chap:

        • If that's not enough, Jimmy has a fair old collection of his own: when he's hospital, it's very similar to the old chap's set:

          • Barry Evans and Philippa Markham seem to have "Lock, Stock & Beryl" in mind rather than what's on the radio in DOCTOR AT LARGE:

            • James Mason must have fantastic batteries in his radio as he sits out weeks and months on a remote Scottish island but can still hear all the latest news and government updates when he's involved in A Touch of Larceny in 1959:

              • The Sea Wolves (1980) [Switzerland|UK|USA]

                https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081470/

                https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sea_Wolves

                Quoting the IMDb: "During World War II, the British must attack a German ship, but it's safe in neutral Goa. As a result, they send civilians: former soldiers who are about sixty years old."

                The cast included Gregory Peck, Roger Moore (whose role in very Bondish), David Niven, Trevor Howard and Patrick Macnee.

                =====

                A radio is located on the 'The Calcutta Light Horse' club house bar from 00:03:24 - 00:04:12 in multiple scenes:

                Colonel Lewis Pugh (Gregory Peck) appears to have a radio on his bedroom chest of drawers as seen from 00:51:31 to 00:51:40 but unfortunately the image quality could not be improved:

                • Whack-O! (s?e?) (1956-1960) [UK]

                  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162833/ (series)

                  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whack-...iving_episodes (series)

                  Quoting from Wikipedia: "British sitcom TV series starring Jimmy Edwards...took the part of Professor James Edwards, M.A., the drunken, gambling, devious, cane-swishing headmaster who tyrannised staff and children at Chiselbury public school (described in the opening titles as "for the sons of Gentlefolk")."

                  The series first ran from 1956 to 1960 for a total of 47 b&w episodes. A further batch of 13 colour episodes then appeared from 1971 to 1972. There was also 3 specials, a film Bottoms Up (1960) and a radio series.

                  Unfortunately as for the tv series only six b&w episodes have survived.

                  In this episode fellow staff member Mr. Oliver Pettigrew wins the Pools and the conniving Edwards naturally comes up with ways to spend that money rather then letting him donate it to charity.

                  =====

                  A mains powered portable radio appears in the Chiselbury public school's Common Room from 00:10:01 to 00:11:51 in multiple scenes.
