19 Apr 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

The oldest working TV in Britain, and possibly in the world, is up for auction. The 75-year old Marconiphone 702 is a 12-inch screen in a wood cabinet.<br /><br /><h3>The oldest working TV</h3>The Marconiphone 702 is believed to be the oldest working TV in Britain – or even the world.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src=pictures/oldesttv-1.jpg><br><i>Britain’s oldest working TV</i></p><br />The TV picture is generation inside the wooden box and then reflected on a mirror in the lid. This gives you a 12-inch screen in black and white.<br /><br />The auction house says that only about 30 percent of the original parts have been replaced to make the TV functional - quite an achievement for a 75-old TV. See the video below for a demonstration.<br /><p align=center><object style="height: 310px; width: 510px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/7lJ7dwnTujg?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/7lJ7dwnTujg?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="510" height="310"></object></p><br />The TV goes up for auction today, April 19th, at Bonhams in London with an estimated price of 5000 UK pounds, although it’s expected to sell for “much more”.<br /><br /><i>Source: <a href=http://www.engadget.com target=_Blank>Engdaget</a></i>
