Baird and Lodge. Portrait of John Logie Baird (1888-1946), Scottish television (TV) pioneer, and Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge (1851-1940), British physicist. Baird (at left) was an unsuccessful businessman who built his first television mainly out of scrap materials. He demonstrated his design in 1926 and in 1927 transmitted TV pictures over telephone lines. Baird subsequently invented a range of improvements to his design. Lodge was a pioneer of wireless telegraphy and invented an early coherer for the detection of radio waves. Lodge also discredited the 'ether' theory which stated that all space was filled with a medium that carried electromagnetic waves.
