      When she turns it on, Beethoven's 5th blares out; Alf recognises the first four notes from wartime, then complains that some moron has gorn and writ a song around it . . .

          • Another radio is a bit of a bartering item when Madhav Sharma signs up to a big order from electrical man Keith James in PUBLIC EYE "Who Wants to be Told Bad News?":

            The deal is going to turn out to be bad news for Keith, unfortunately.

              Wally Patch takes extreme measures to avoid listening to the set in Archie Pitt's caravan. Olive Blakeney, Archie and Ronald Shiner are just resigned to hear the latest Brexit non-news

              Len Harvey contents himself with some stained glass examinations with the soothing music of Judas Priest in the background.

                Following my own criteria (actually identifying these mostly-obscure radios),
                I have a rare success! From The Power Game episode Safe Conduct (1966):

                That's what I like to see - a legible brand name. There is conflicting information about the product, however.


                This is certainly a Sony TFM-116 but a number of identical-looking models have a different year and letter after the 116:

                The WorthPoint listing for this version is "Sony TFM-116A, Early 60's" What is the word that precedes "Band 11 Transistor"?

                YouTube video for 116L ("early 1960s" again)

                Turning Japanese and Ain't No Sunshine can be heard, along with the voice of Jonathan Ross.

                  "Three", as in there are three bands indicated.FM, MW and .. I wanted to say "short", but it doesn't look like that. To my eyes, it looks like ""UHF[N]".

                  Oops, answered in a later post, that I should have read first.

                  You're both right with "Three" (you and Andy, next post). I can see that now. Thanks for your help.

                I think it'll be 'three band', as it seems to cover FM, MW and short or possibly 'marine'. I suspect all the different suffixes indicate exactly which bands it has.

                      Oh, how these American boys (hoodlums Bernard Nedell, Edmon Ryan and Edmund Dalby) despise the Light Programme.
