Cool!

They kept their 405-line transmitters going until 1985?!

There's also BA and metric and no little SAE; I have long been convinced the Brits run to a much higher population density of pro and amateur machinists than other nations and find amusement in the puzzlement the rest of us feel at their plethora of thread types.

I believe the British live by the axiom that standards are great, because there are so many to choose from.
