I have just acquired this television. No information about Goodwins other than an appliance shop in Darley street Newtown.

Goodwins were a medium sized appliance chain that didn't survive the credit squeeze.

It's almost certainly a rebadged EKCO. Hope it's the T211 and not the earlier chassis.

The Goodwins failure was a major factor in the demise of EKCO here.

If it's an EKCO wouldn't it be a hot chassis?
I see a mains transformer there and a Rola yoke.
I'd like to see inside the EHT cover.
Might give more clues.

It is the T211 and it's NOT a hot chassis. Good one!

Not a bad design, it was local EKCO's effort to make a TV that would have a better reputation with the trade. By and large they succeeded, pity the credit squeeze killed them.

Under the EHT cover is a standard Rola EHT transformer and a 1S2 in a standard at the time Teletron socket.

What's the CRT like? Have a look here:

Set looks to be a good restoration prospect. I have a part copy of the schematic - missing the other part due to a scanner error.

Thanks for the information fellows. I have cleaned it but not any farther. It's on the to do list.
