When I worked for Radio Rentals sometimes after work we would visit a local pub for a ‘quick one’ before going home.
It was the early days of remote control and this pub had an early Baird remote TV. We would take a handset and hide it under the table. Sometimes other customers would be viewing something interesting and we would change channel or mute the sound (only functions of these 2 button RCUs). The reaction was sometimes amusing, the language and expletives choice. Probably puerile but I suppose we were more easily amused then.
