A series of three programmes.
Lynn Poole, well known in America for his weekly television programme "The Johns Hopkins Science Review", examines the growth of television in Great Britain.
He shows how the idea of television was first realised by J.L. Baird with his 30-line system, and how the world's first public television service, begun in 1936 at Alexandra Palace, has developed into that we know today.
Sir Henry Dale writes on page 41
