Note that in those days, TVs had KNOBS!
VHF had individual click detents, with a "fine tuning" analog knob that 
would take you almost to what you wanted to tune.
UHF didn't even have detents, with a continuous analog knob (one coarse, 
one fine) from 14 to 83.

Very soon after that, TVs started to have digital channel selection,
and "Don't touch that knob!" became an anachronism.
