PHILIPS 8th Generation (G8 Chassis) 1971 to 1977


The Philips G8 chassis represented the second production colour TV design from the company for the UK market.  Models based on the design were in production between 1970 and 1977 (I understand 1970 to 1971 was the G6/G8 change over years).

The Plates below show a selection of G8’s.
