      • Here's a neat transistor radio in the Avengers episode 'Never, never say Die'. It's clearly a '3 band seven transistor', but the badge on the front is not clear. At the bottom it says '3 band', but above that it says something like 'Matsir', but no amount of sharpening will bring it out - anyone with a Blu-ray version out there? There's a tiny Standard Micronic Ruby in the same ep.

          I got my magnifying glass out & I reckon the brand is "Belair"! The one below has a similar logo.

            • Stuck on The Avengers at the moment, sorry. Here's the latest in miniature answering machines from the episode 'You have just been Murdered'.

              • We used to have a large radiogram, one of those free-standing bits of furniture with a radio and a record player in it.

                They appear in a few films.

                • With apologies to cornershop, this one needed to be added as it's quite unusual:

                  • No need to apologise, Gerald! Please continue posting any vintage radios you spot. I remain optimistic they will be identified eventually but am astounded at how elusive most of them are, despite my awareness of specialist sites like The Radio Attic (hundreds there) and trying various searches by brand name.

                    I can't imagine finding that one either. It looks more like a Surrealist painting than a fireplace.

                    • The radio that infuriates adrift Windbag the Sailor in 1936, but ultimately saves the lives of Will Hay, Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt when they later encounter cannibals:

                              • Frankie Howerd goes to switch off Malcolm Arnold's pop version of his main title music for The Great St. Trinian's Train Robbery (1966) as he arrives to find Jeremy Clyde and his daughter Maureen Crombie having a bit of fun:

                                One of my favourite lines from the film soon follows:

                                Jeremy: Just because I'm a trend setter!
                                Frankie: You look more like a bleedin' irish setter to me.
