Caption: John Logie Baird (1888-1946), Scottish engineer. Baird is most famous for inventing the world's first working television system. On 26 January 1926 he gave the world's first demonstration of true television. In 1927 his television was demonstrated over 438 miles (705 kilometres) of telephone line between London and Glasgow, and he formed the Baird Television Development Company (BTDC). In 1928 the BTDC achieved the first trans-Atlantic television transmission between London and New York. Here he is seen sitting before the Pilot image screen and at the controls of the machine used to transmit television across the Atlantic.
