#42 don’t get me started
I’d be very interested in your thoughts on the differences between UK and Japanese tv. My only knowledge is from uk tv which would show a clip of a Japanese newsreader shouting very angrily at the screen.
I remember our first tv, it was a wooden cube with a 14” screen and made by Bush. Only bbc existed and for the first 2nights I was allowed to stay up until all programs finished and we stared at the test screen which soon vanished to a dot.
One night my dad forgot to turn it off and the next day day it wouldn’t work and so he removed the back cover to look inside. One of the valves was discoloured so he removed it and sent me with it on my bicycle to the ‘radio shop’ for a replacement. I think it cost 10/-. It worked. Well done dad.
