This 10 inch British set was first announced in the HMV sales catalog printed in the summer of 1939. The release date for the set was August 29, two days before the BBC discontinued TV transmission for the duration of World War Two (information courtesy of Michael Bennett-Levy). This is the only known set of this type to survive. Here is technical information.
