BIC (British Industry Corporation) used to make very high end turntables, and import other audio equipment such as Garrard turntables, Luxman amplifiers and Wharfedale loudspeakers.  It still makes loudspeakers.  From 1977, the Beam Box FM10 was the first Electronically Directable FM Antenna.  You could fine tune an FM signal by simply turning the knobs on the Beam Box.
