Why is the back off your t.v. ? That's not safe....
Chris: Oh dear..
It seems you've found yourself in a time warp... Should we call Doc Brown to bring his DeLorean?
Chris: That is a good idea Elizabeth
i love your 1950's television set Chris... and i'm sure that you can still get 2015 bad news on it....petersmile
Chris: Only news from the 1950s I'm afraid..

What a wonderful story picture. I remember watching a television just like that - if this was in b&w, I would have thought it was taken in the 1950's!
Chris: This reminds me of my childhood Beth

Must be riveting stuff on the silly box, Chris, as that codger has not even acknowledged the presence of a professional documenter.
Chris: As you can see Ray I have upgraded my living space

To think, you were probably too young to watch television then, Chris
Chris: You are TOO KIND Lisl

We had a TV like that. My father worked with Philips in that department and I was 2 when we got a TV, in 1956.....
I am glad that you have a good TV, too bad the programs are 'rotten'.....
Great shot!!! (and I see you wear my favourite shirt)
Chris: Everybody with good taste loves this shirt Astrid, if I could remember where the heck I got it I'd buy some more..
Somehow you fit the part to a "T," Chris! grin
Chris: That is very kind of you Ginnie

What a solid, proper, petty life!
Chris: It's a little dated though Philine..

Hahah! Brilliant. I like the homely feelings of Tiif Towers. Appropriately, it is the 60th anniversary celebrations of ITV today. I remember the excitement of it.
Chris: Yes I do too, the dawn of a new era in "entertainment" which soon revealed itself as a succession of cheap game shows and soap operas..
I remember they used to have a break in the early evening to allow parents to put children to bed. It seems that the better the Televisions get the less I watch as the content is rubbish

Which NT pile is this by the way?
Chris: Basildon Park, or something like that, near Reading
It's not really all that long ago that these came on the scene, in geological time. A friend of mine had one but we didn't get one until I was twelve. I remember backs off and horizontal lines going crazy
Chris: Happy days eh Janet!

The days when you had to get up and twiddle a dial to change the channel, Chris.
Chris: Quite right Pauline, we had to walk all the way to the set and then back to change the channel. Try telling that to the kids of today!
Don't spend too much time in front of the box, Chris. They turn you brain to mush. There is another box now called the internet that is working on the next generations.
Chris: In that case I will go out and buy one

That old guy seems to think the light from a bulb will hurt his pate. Seeing this renovation of your parlour, is like taking a trip down memory lane. Not that we had Telly the Tube back then, but their would have been a box full of valves, called a radio.
Chris: I have a radio too Louis
I still can remember our first T.V.at home and how excited I was when we got it.
Chris: Same here in the very early 1960s I seem to recall

Gosh, haven't things moved on since those B&W TV days?
Chris: We now live a life of comparative luxury! owning cinema size televisions with hundreds of channels, most of them broadcasting complete cr*p..
I wouldn't have thought you could still get the valves for that!
Chris: Another of life's surprises Tom
It appears you fit in at any age.
