In the latest film, Toby Faber tells the story of his grandfather’s acoustic gramophone, purchased in the 1930s. He unfolds the history of the company that made them and demonstrates the gramophone with its bamboo needles that you need to shave every play, and how certain recordings still sound better on this device than modern equipment.
