Friese Green's film on BBC2

Sorry if I've missed this elsewhere, but what display unit is Dan whatsisname using on his TV prog about Friese Green's 1920s colour film?

Doesn't it tell you on the site??

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I'm talking about the TV programme where Dan uses a small hand-held display similar to a laptop screen to show interviewees parts of the Friese-Greene film. I haven't found anything on the web site to indicate what he is using and I thought knowledgeable folks on this forum would instantly recognise it. Perhaps no one watches the programme.

I have been watching the programmes but I just assumed it was a portable DVD player. It looked similar to some I have seen in the shops.

Thanks for yours. They seem to move the "display" around and also poke it, which I thought a DVD player wouldn't stand, also it seems to be folded back on itself. I thought it must be some sort of solid-state device.

Must be a touch-screen tablet, then. Unless Mr. Cruickshank has somehow got his hands on an Origami!

I assumed it was all fake anyway. I mean, I didn't really believe when he was showing parts of the film to people that they were really viewing them. Maybe that's me being cynical.

It is not a fake and this is the here

I think I've found out what it is: click here It's a DVD player made by Nextbase. (Someone more eagle-eyed than me spotted the name on the casing).

One minute! I'm going to have to type quicker....

Thanks to you both for that. I had seen the name in yesterday's programme but hadn't got round to Googling it. Seems a quite reasonable price for what appears to be a nice piece of kit.
