PYE B18T TELEVISION, 1948

Housed in a wooden cabinet single band only (only BBC transmitted at the time). Using nineteen valves including eleven EF50's plus a 19inch CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) and designed to operate from AC mains, the set has no mains transformer so it could run from DC mains. The BBC transmitted from London and Birmingham so sets at the time needed an appropriate tuner to receive each service. In January 1949 it cost 49 Guineas.
