The BBC Television Centre is auctioning off a load of its former equipment now that it is no longer used for broadcasting, and out of the more than two-thousand objects for sale, some are.. interesting.

OK, most of it is very technical television and radio studio equipment that might appeal to low-budget operators.

But what sort of self-respecting hipster wouldn’t want one of these on their bedside desk?

A pallet load of 50 old Dell computers for a tenner? Actually, they have a lot of computers for sale, including some to sate collectors of old Apple Macs. Or buyers of consumer gadgets and mobile phones over here.

Serious fans of television might like to own one of these mobile TV camera stands.lot_3810_78493

    The London scenes look like they are of the 1908 exhibition held at White City, hence the link to TV Centre.

    Any volunteers to pick up and post one for me?
