Test card mug

Test card mug

Back in the days before we had hundreds of channels of TV available 24 hours a day, the test card was a familiar sight. This test card mug features what was perhaps the most commonly remembered test card, the one showing a girl playing noughts and crosses with clown.

Officially known as test card F, it was first broadcast in 1967 and this version was used on the BBC until 1999. It's also been spoofed many times, by everyone from Johnny Vegas to The Mighty Boosh. 

Perfect for supping from while you watch the telly, the mug costs £6.46.
