Each classroom had a kid appointed to be the one who pushed the TVs from one room to another, as the TVs were shared. At least once someone got going too fast and toppled one over in the hallway. I remember getting Spanish lessons and some history lessons on those TVs.
Good ol' Mr. Duncan standing beside the TV.
(Yes I am in the picture. No I won't say which one!)
Some history, Ling Electronics. The Dallas electronics firm was founded by Jimmy Ling, who later by way of merger founded LTV Corp, LTV being Ling, Temco, Vought. This company later purchased Altec Lansing Corporation and University Sound, to name some famous audio/video companies. Their former Oklahoma City, OK plant is now the home of Great Plains Audio, who still has the original Altec Lansing tooling and still makes and repairs the classic Altec Lansing speaker drivers.
