WANTED: The Dawn of Television CD

Postby Andrew Davie » Fri May 12, 2017 8:45 pm

Hi All. I'm unable to find my copy of "The Dawn of Television CD" on which are copies of the restorations of the early Baird recordings and off-air BBC broadcasts with Betty Bolton, etc. I'd dearly like to find a copy, so if you have one you'll sell or know where I can find one please let me know.

Small subsections of the restored recordings are avaialble as animating GIF files. Another small portion is on YouTube. However, the CD contains the full-length restorations as video and also the original sound recordings. The CD is a goldmine of information and highly worth pursuing. It seems to be no longer available, alas.
