John Logie Baird. View of the Scottish electrical engineer and television (TV) pioneer, John Logie Baird (1888-1946) in his workshop. The son of a presbyterian minister, Baird 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 transmiss- ions. He used 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. Photographed in 1915.
