The national radio show was a big thing for Mullard and indeed any other post war radio manufacturer as they all pulled out the stops to present their wares to a burgeoning post war consumer boom.
The Mullard stand was large and extensive as this photo shows where chassis work from many manufacturers that utilised Mullard components were suspended on show - very outre!
The media in the form of Auntie Beeb was in attendance and here we see a BBC TV cameraman using real film ( and later presumably tele-cine) to record the new range of Mullard valves for the waiting nation.
With the BBC also came Sylvia Peters, the Television Announcer who was there looking looking at Mullard CRT tubes as she took a break from announcing Come Dancing..
Or what about some urchins trying to 'Beat the Electron' on a Mullard display.
Awefully spiffing and redolent of the time of lashings of ginger beer, or - before the collective noun police take me to task, correctly I should say, lashings of boiled eggs - yum!!!!
