Long time

Do Not Adjust Your Set!

This exhibition on vintage television sets presents some of the finest specimens from an outstanding collection amassed by Canadian media magnate Moses Znaimer. Donated to the Cinémathèque in 2004, the collection consists of 96 television sets manufactured between 1928 and 1999. It includes 16 sets from before the Second World War, 34 from the 1940s, 20 from the 1950s, 20 from the 1960s and 1970s, and 6 from the 1980s and 1990s. Some of them, like the Jenkins Radiovisor, RCA’s TRK series or the RCA CT-100, the first colour TV marketed in the United States, are now extremely rare.
