For 30 years the name Rediffusion dominated the TV rental business in the city of Leicester with it's cable TV system offering interference free viewing to over 11,000 homes.
Rediffusion offered a similar service in many major towns across the UK and in some overseas locations.
The well respected service came to an untimely end in the mid 1980's with the sale of the rental business and many of the assets.
There is little evidence of the system today but the name Rediffusion will live on in peoples memories for many years.
