Funnily enough, a good many years ago I delivered a VHS VCR (Ferguson 3V23 - top of the range) to a gentleman at Baslow (in the Peak District National Park) - and the reason he bought it was to play a tape provided to him by the BBC. The programme on the tape featured the guy, who had been on TV as the world record holder, having grown the worlds largest onion.

It 'might' have been the guy above?, I can't remember - however, he didn't hold the title long, someone grew a larger one.

That's classic lol. Hahaha. No vacuum needed. +100
A VERY long time ago we had a customer bring his B&W valve TV (Thorn 850 or 950 chassis?) in for repair - he said he'd tightened all the loose screws up, and now it doesn't work any more. He'd screwed all the IF cores, audio as well as video, to the bottom of the transformers.

I spent a long time doing spot frequency alignment (as per the service manual) using an ex-Army frequency generator, which used a paper calibration graph to convert frequency to the linear numbers (0-100.00) on the vernier knob.
