This television receiver would have been built after World War II (1939-1945), when the BBC resumed television broadcasts. During the post-war period there was rapid expansion in the television industry. Production technology had improved, making sets cheaper to buy. However, even one of the cheaper models still cost around four weeks wages. By the early 1950s there were over four million television sets in Britain.
