Oldest TV in Britain - What's Your Oldest Applicance?

You won't find a channel changer knob on Jeffrey Borinsky's TV for a very good reason: there was only channel in 1936...the BBC.

Jeffrey's Marconiphone television was manufactured in the months after Britain's first "high definition" service began. As a collector of antique television and radio sets he hopes to restore it completely to it's original state. But he doesn't have to wait to view TV as his grandparents might have because the set still works with the help of a converter box.

Watch the Marconiphone for yourself in this video...and then leave a comment telling what the oldest appliance is in your home.
