When Television Licencing Officer Brian Howe roamed the streets of Weatherfield in February 1976, Stan Ogden panicked and tried to hide their television, dropping it in the process and breaking it, only to find that wife Hilda had already purchased a licence. Afraid of what the rental shop would say, Stan tried to get Ray Langton to fix it but he was unable to but did point them in the direction of Vic Nelson, a friend of his who was an "electronics genius". The Ogdens were pleased until Ray told them that Vic would require £40 to do the job. Unable to afford this, Hilda decided to be honest and called the rental shop and Vic's services were never called on.
