    I was watching "Cagney & Lacey" last night, and part of the story had
    them undercover in a computer factory, working on an assembly line that
    manufactured computer consoles.  I'm sure those were Symbolics consoles
    they were putting together.  They were the right color, including the
    keyboard layout, and they had the standard Symbolics monitor cabinet.
    They never allowed the camera to focus on any of the places where the
    "symbolics" name is printed, though, and there was no "computer
    equipment supplied by" in the closing credits.

    So, does some props department in Hollywood have a cache of used
    Symbolics consoles for such purposes, or was Symbolics actively involved
    in the episode?

That episode was filmed in the Symbolics manufacturing facility at
