Caption

Baird demonstrating his television. Coloured photograph of the Scottish engineer John Logie Baird (1888-1946) operating one of his early television systems. Baird's original demonstration was to the Royal Institution in 1926. The system required strong lights (as seen here), and so ventriloquist dummies were used in demonstrations and early broadcasts, instead of real people. Original photograph published in Television (Dinsdale, 1928).
