Interim T.V. Tabs P.U.
Mfr. BAC Warton Electronics
This prototype TVTab unit was found in a Hut on the Rochester site and was apparently made at Warton ( it is marked BAC Warton/Panavia). This would be prior to the merger when Warton was the British Aircraft Corporation. Quite why it came to be made, or exactly when, remains a mystery. It has a similarity to the final production TVTab particularly in the keyboard but is possibly not even of military construction. The unit may be a rig or laboratory model.
