Hi, welcome to my private collection of early vintage colour televisions, have a browse, discover a range of vintage 20th Century British colour television sets. An on-line telly museum, the collection spans a little over 10 years of colour TV development, what a contrast ( excuse the pun) of sets. This period could be considered the Hey-Day of colour CRT TV technology. The TV’s all arrive non working and you can follow their subsequent repair here.
The year category 1967-1968, displays some of the sets you could have rented or purchased in the first year of colour being launched in the UK and these sets are prefixed with a star.
Hover your mouse above to find a set from a particular year, see if you remember any. Reminisce when sets were powered by valves from the giants Mullard & Mazda and brands such as PYE, Murphy, Decca, HMV, GEC Bush and many others were household names, all now sadly gone but not forgotten.
