Although television was first adopted in the UK, the UK television industry is relatively small in world terms. In 1980, the ‘non-socialist’ world produced some 35 million colour televisions (CTVs). Western Europe accounted for 10.9 million of these, the UK made about 1.75 million. Thorn, the largest UK producer ranked twelfth out of the thirteen largest CTV producers globally in 1977 (Table 4.1). The Dutch Philips company and all five Japanese firms represented in the Table operate subsidiaries or joint ventures in the UK.
