I just thought one up, mount the TV to a chain, saw a dirty big hole in the ceiling, buy 2 pulleys and have the other end of the chain through a hole above the bed. Job done.

buy a projector and a motorised screen..

much better than keep putting the poor telly into the cold, damp, and dusty loft.. you'd need to build an insulated air tight box to retract into otherwise..

Do you plant projector bulbs in the garden to grow little projectors from?

That is a filament of someone's current imagination.
