              Some of the radios shown in The Weaker Sex (1948) which uses them as a device to fill us in as to where the world is at given points in the episodic storyline:

                Looks like a pretty basic model Dirk Bogarde has when he was Once a Jolly Swagman in 1948:

                      Here, the enchanting Mrs. Wall (Pauline Delaney) tries to bewitch our hero with a broadcasted rendition of "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen"

                      Later, in the house of the even more enchanting Mrs. O'Flynn, we hear of Rooney's sporting prowess.

                          A screencap from the film Charlie Chan at the Olympics (1937), featuring a Radio.



                          Also seen in the above screencap - Arthur Hughes (C. Henry Gordon).

                              Spotted this in 'Jigsaw' a couple of weeks ago: It seems to be a Zenith 500E from 1959. I'm not sure whether these were ever officially imported to the UK, I've certainly never come across one despite keeping my eyes open.

                                That Bush looks really familiar, but it is not quite the one I grew up with. The ivory coloured buttons in the middle are the same, the displayed wavelengths and maybe even the knobs, but the box is different. Where could I go looking for similar examples Cornershop15 ?
