Reel News – Introducing Television

For an early instance of  ‘electric vision’ as demonstrated by one of the pioneers of television, John Logie Baird (1888-1946), see the high-quality download of the Gaumont Graphic newsreel story Television (29/08/1928). For viewers without an UK HE/FE subscription, the story is also accessible on the ITN Source website.

In 1932 control of Baird Television passed to the Gaumont British Picture corporation. For more information on Baird and the development of the television industry see the Baird Television website.
