Does it have any AV input sockets? Does it have a SCART socket?

If it only has an input for the antenna then you will need an RF modulator. Maybe it's not possible, or not worth the effort.

Forget it. Using TVs like that was a pain 35 years ago when the ZX80 came out.

Si esa tele tiene al menos una toma de antena, necesitarás un aparato externo para convertir la señal RCA a RF aparte del consabido cable TRRS con la toma de tierra en el segundo anillo.

And trying to find an RF modulator that works with the analog AV signal from the Raspberry Pi is not worth the effort to get a crappy unwatchable picture.

Well, the saner alternative is "get a second-hand late model CRT TV for ten quid" but that was not really in the question. :)
