Although television is as yet in the experimental stage, the Baird Television Company, in co-operation with the B.B.C., is this afternoon presenting the first production of a play by television. Care has been taken by the joint-producers of "The Man with the Flower in his Mouth" to make full use of the limited scope for visual production as yet afforded by the invention, and those listeners who are able to hear and witness the play will find it by far the most interesting television transmission so far attempted.
