Default Help wiring up a CCTV camera

Hello,

I have obtained a CCTV camera, model Silent Witness V28RT and it cam with
wiring diagram.

I have stripped it down and I was expecting be able to simply plug in 12v
and a coax somewhere but to no avail.

What I have found is a 4 slot block connector with no labelling on and an 8
slot strip connector labelled as

N/U CASE - PWR + - AUD + - VID +

I assuming I can connect 12v DC to the one that says - PWR + and a coax to
the one that says -VID +.

As I am a complete novice at this can I plug the camera staright into the
back of my TV (and tune it in)

or am I missing a vital part on this

Any help would be gladly appreciated

If your TV supports 'composite' in, yes you can plug it in to TV or the
Composite in of your Video recorder.

You might need to link PWR- and COAX-(screen)

You need to connect to the A/V (red-yellow-white phono sockets) or SCART
on the telly and select A/V on the remote control. If you don't have
SCART or A/V and want to use the aerial (RF) input, you'll need a modulator.

Maplin have SCART-phono adaptors and modulators (modulators about thirty
green drinkie vouchers)
