    Dawn of the Dead (the original not the remake) they have a Beocentre in the room over the shopping mall with linear tracking TT but I don't know which model it is. Odd choice though when they have a whole hi-fi store to loot for kit.

    You can often see a Cambridge separates pile in Eastenders, but have never seen any speakers....maybe they don't have any as they can't ever have time to listen to music as they are all too busy shouting and scheming at each other and shouting "I will get eet sorted....alright!"

    I saw a great system on Escape to The Country which occupied a whole room. The speakers were MBL and looked something like these.

    Buy Bose...And get your parking validated!.

    Grand Designs usually has the odd, interesting system on show.. Spotted a full Quad setup in one episode the other day (no TT though). Wouldn't like to attempt to identify some of the components as I'm not au fait on the various models but I did note two 306's and a pair of ESL 63's...

    It's interesting that people in soaps, even youngsters, are never shown listening to music or watching TV.

    One exception I can recall was Coronation St in the 1980s when after having a disastrous series of child 'actresses' playing the young Tracey Barlow they abandoned the idea entirely. To keep the character alive if anyone asked about her Deidre would reply: 'Tracey's in her bedroom playing her turps'. That went on for some years...

    Through The Keyhole, now there's a blast from the past. We talking Amstrad 'Towers of Power' here?
