Old Amstrad TV, no SCART, non standard video plugs?

I've got an old Amstrad Televideo, about 20 years old, still good as a kitchen TV. I bought a SCART to 2 (video and audio) plug connector, then found that the video and audio in on the back are a different type of plug.
Can anyone advise what standard they are? Hopefully I can then get some additional adapters and connect the freeview box.

Thanks, the socket has got the pins on the video in, so that's the video plug solved. Will check out Maplin again
The 'audio in' socket is smaller than the one on the SCART to video and audio cable, any ideas on that one?

Any chance of a picture or even the model number?

The service manual (not that it's much help with this problem) is downloadable here

In the spare parts list the sockets listed are
BNC
RCA
Earphone (3.5mm jack)

So, the inputs you need to use are the BNC and RCA (phono)
