Caption: John Logie Baird. Portrait of John Logie Baird (1888-1946), Scottish electrical engineer and television (TV) pioneer. The son of a presbyterian minister, Baird was educated in Glasgow and devoted himself to experimentation and developed a crude TV apparatus able to transmit a picture and receive it over a range of a few feet. By 1929 his company was involved with early TV transmissions. He was using a mechanical scanning system with 240 lines by 1936, but his system was displaced by the Marconi-EMI electronic scanning system with 405 lines. Baird also pioneered colour, stereoscopic and big screen TV, as well as ultra-short-wave transmission.
