A wonderful article re: Baird's transatlantic broadcast 1928

Postby magicanim8r » Sat Feb 17, 2007 6:59 pm

I collect Popular Science and Science and Invention magazines from the 1920's and recently ran across this article from the May 1928 Popular Science issue. It is in two parts and I tried to keep the file size as small as possible and still preserve legibility. I would be interested to hear from other members as to their opinons about certain points of interest covered in this article. Mr. Baird was a brilliant man and such an important figure in the history of television. I hope other members will enjoy this article as much as I did finding it.

Best to all,

Allan Rosson

Very nice, and thanks for posting.

I have also stumbled across a 1932 mention of television in Scientific American -- Scientific American May 1932 Volume 146 Number 5. All I know about this is "Where is television? - television comparable to home movie equipment in quality of image will probably not be available for some time".

Does anyone have a copy, or access to a copy, of this issue?
