Did anyone else have a "TV room" at school? That's what we had at primary school rather than pushing the TV on a trolley round classrooms (though they did do that occasionally). Had posters on the wall with that year's BBC and ITV Schools/4Schools schedule too.
Yes - at junior school there was a TV room in an annexe which was also a youth club space. The TV was a Rediffusion style set with a rotary dial on the wall to switch between the BBC and ITV (as Rediffusion TVs of that era didn't have internal tuners - and each channel was delivered on a separate wire...)
We didn't have a VCR at junior school (nor did we have computers)
At secondary school we had a Philips NV1500 in one of the classrooms used for Art, Design and Technology and within my time at the school a number of VHS machines were purchased - which were usually installed on trolleys with a TV. However as there were a large number of mobile classrooms (used for language learning) which were a pair of classrooms with communal steps, not really conducive to a trolley and 21" CRT TV - those rooms had a dedicated TV and VHS machine. I remember the excitement when a satellite dish arrived to allow us to watch French and German TV live in the late 80s!
