  1. Thanks for uploading these.

    My Gran had a 37140 for many years as a second set when she bought a caravan that could be connected to the mains.

    It’s not surprising that the Sinclair Spectrum is mentioned in the monitor pages, as Thorn were making them at Enfield on behalf of Sinclair.

  2. We rented a 37023 and a 37140 from MultiBroadcast simultaneously. 37140 gave no trouble at all, 37023 needed luminance adjustment, once had sound jam at full volume, frequently lost remote control sensitivity, occasionally lost green on teletext and once had its switch break. (Radio Rentals had become responsible for it by then.) In any case, both are on my list of sets to have in my collection.

  3. Looking again at this, one of my dad’s cousins had a 3756 in about 1983. I remember because another was watching YTV’s “Calendar” on it and I mentioned that I recognised Richard Whiteley from “Countdown”, but Channel 4 had not reached Chesterfield transmitter by then. I remember the remote control. I’m not sure where the actual owner of the set was at the time.
