      But she wasn't too bothered to acquire a more up-to-date radio set, it seems.

        Curiously not broadcasting "ITMA" during It's That Man Again (1943), but imparting plot (such as there is) to confused composer Franklyn Bennett.

              AGATHA POIROT'S POIROT has a different set from earlier episodes when he listens to "The Affair at the Victory Ball".

                    And on this one in the pub, he gets a bright idea how an ancient buzzard like him can re-enlist.
                    This is super exciting. Thanks for sharing it.

                      By Christmas 1986, Alf Garnett seems to have acquired another radio IN SICKNESS & IN HEALTH, which is playing the music of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas":

                      R.I.P. Carmel McSharry, who died just a few days before Gerald's post on 4th March last year.


                      Better late than never, I've identified the radio behind Una Stubbs as an EKCO A22:

                      The EKCO A22 in action (briefly)

                      Designed by Wells Coates in 1945.


                      His AD65 model was also identified in March 2018 (post #31).

                        • Hy Hazell looks like she's upset with what she's hearing on the radio:

                          But in fact she thinks she's got a male admirer arriving, though it's just the hero with Just William's Luck (1948).

                          • Petra Markham is the troublesome one in "The Trouble with Jenny" facing PUBLIC EYE and this is the radio she leaves on during her "suicide" attempt:

                            • The household radio that causes some upset for Artie, or is it Mr. Nigle, or Mr. Pastry, or Richard Hearne, who's Something in the City in 1950:
