I actually noticed that a couple of days ago. meant to post
something
here, but forgot.

There was quite a lot of familiar electronics stuff in the shows,
one
can imagine Gerry and Sylvia touring the electronics emporia on
Tottenham Court Road for props. Props from proops!



In many TV series of the 60's and 70's, if there were to be any
'boffins' in the background that had to have instrumentation in front
of them you would regularly see a Telequipment D54, the odd Tektronix,
and the daddy of them all, a Cossor 1035. They always seemed to have
static or rolling single or double sinewaves on the screen as well.

Ah, them were't days.............................
