I believe TV has more than one connotation these days.
In which case, and merely to keep the record straight ... I've never had a TV.

Nick describes the channel as a "...fantastic high profile TV channel".
It probably only exists in his own fantasy land, where the 1890s are still churning out Allwins, complete with THOSE HINGES...!

Nice set of French Allwin hinges by coincidence was added to the list for November’s Elephant auction......me suspects it was not a coincidence given the only thing added last night :D

I see it is finally hitting the television in the new series on restoring old items called “Mend it for money” on Channel 4. The first in series next Monday at 8pm has this Allwin restoration. Something to watch during the lockdown :D
