Hi all,

(I've also posted this in the Wanted and For Sale thread, so apologies for the double up)

I'm working on a series of telemovies in Melbourne set in 1964, so we're looking for an Astor or similar television from that time. A small unit on legs like the Astor BTR would be perfect, but I'm keen for all suggestions. Doesn't need to work of course. Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Stuart

I could offer a Pye Pedigree from 1964. In case you want to use it, it works and I have the means to display content on it.

Not small at 23 inches but compact and in pristine condition. It sits on a metal "magazine rack" which I also have.

Definitely period correct and were quite common in the mid to late 60s, biggest selling TV on the market..

Thanks so much for responding Ian. That TV looks fantastic! I'll email you for further details.

Best,
Stuart
