    We were so poor i had to get all my clothes from the army surplus stores. It's not much fun going to school dressed like a Grenadier Guard i can tell you.

    We had a grundig tv.
    i believe 405 was one chanel and 625 the other, one bbc, one itv.
    There was summat to do with uhf and vhf and ours was tuned in with a dail.
    It took a good few minutes to come on and an age for the final dot in the middle of the screen to disappear once turned off.
    The bloke next door had redifussion and could get the "wireless" throught his tv by using a very high tech wall control which made a loud click when turned...........
    Later bbc added a second chanel, though wern't sure if having three chanels available to the public was a bit over the top!!!!!!!!
    They inventively called this second chanel bbc...........2

    I put together a 5" TV from ex-radar parts during my demob leave in 1949. A magnifying screen bought the green display up to a fairly tolerable 9". Neighbours used to come round to watch special programmes, & no one complained about the green picture. I had to erect a huge homemade H aerial on the back of the house because the chimney didn't look strong enough.

    "I believe 405 was one chanel and 625 the other, one bbc, one itv."

    Wrong audi,,, 405 and 625 were the amount of lines on the TV (resolution i think) one had 405 lines horizontally and the other 625 lines. 4o5 lines were used by black and white tv's then later on when colour came out 625 lines were the norm. ;)

    We got our first TV in 1969 to watch the moon landings! We also watched the maiden flight of Concorde on TV and then ran out of the house to watch it land at RAF Fairford.

    I was very proud to be one of the first children to go on Concorde and meet Brian Trubshaw the test pilot as a prize for getting top marks in the local 11 plus!..whatever happened to that clever little boy?

    How did I end up a plumber ?

    We had a 60" tv in 1917 (full colour naturelement) so we could watch WW1 live. It was great, all those Tommys attacking all those Jerries.

    After the war Tom and Jerry started their own tv series and then invented expensive ice cream.

    Complete true facts.

    It was most disconcerting to have to * into a screwed up piece of the Radio Times. I wonder how I managed to grow into a well rounded adult.
