Monochrome TV’s I used to own

Before moving over completely to colour TV, I used to have a fairly large collection of B&W sets. These consisted of single standard 405 but also a fair few dual standard 405/625 covering the period of 1949 – 1973. The old website used to feature all these sets but since the revamp and refocus they were removed. I’ve been asked if it were possible to put an album collection together so members could wander through them all once again. As a result here we have them all in one vintage B&W album.

I’ve actually kept a couple of the old B&W sets which are special to me but have included them here for completeness.

  1. I once had a KB D/s set, like the one you have above, but this one had an all black front and when you turned it on the lights came up and illuminated all the controls and the channels! Wish I’d have photoed it now, but you don’t think about the future then!


  2. Picture 48/48 looks familiar. In the early-80’s I bought a Murphy dual-standard set for £6.50 from a school auction. It worked fine, apart from what I now know to be a hum bar. I wish I’d still got it; I gave it to a Scout’s jumble sale around 1990 along with a Ferguson Colourstar.

    Mine had a very dark green painted finish to the top and sides.
