This set was made around 1948 and was probably the most expensive TV ever made in the UK. Dynatron equipment was very expensive, and this set has a top class radio tuner and amplifier in a large stepped cabinet with the TV in the middle and the radio on one side and the phonograph on the other side. There are only about 3 in the United Kingdom.

This set has a special history. It was the demonstration model for the radio show and was kept at Dynatron's head office until they were taken over by Roberts Radio (the last British radio manufacturer).
