Period:   from the beginning of 1960's to the beginning of 1980's
Type:   TV OB Units
Quantity:   1 specimens available

Built by the Marconi Company in 1967 as one of a pair to start off Yorkshire Television in colour, this unit now belongs to Golden Age Television and has been fitted out with a view to facilitate re-creations from the early 1960's to the early 1980's by changing out some key items (mainly monitors). Now operational and available with a selection of monitors and cameras the unit has already been used in 'The Royal' for ITV and is currently in blue/white/silver and 'Tyne Tees' logos (removable). The vehicle is fully road legal, is 32 feet long and weighs 12 tons. Packed full of vintage equipment in four areas, production, sound, engineering control and engineering racks. The production areas lend themselves very well to gallery reconstructions with views through. Please enquire for further details.

Now restored to 1968 operational status with four working Marconi Mk VII colour cameras, this is a window into early colour TV operation in the UK. The vehicle (a Bedford VAL) is 34 ft long, weighs 11 tons and is fully road legal. Unusual 'longitudinal' layout with sound, production and engineering laid longways in the manner of a corridor train. Wood panel interior. Comes complete with 30 ft pneumatic mast. Now in original 'Southen Television colours and logos. Logos require separate negotiation. Please enquire for further details.
