Product Overview

No other technological innovation can be cited whose impact on the fabric of daily living has been as pervasive as that of television. A sole inventor does not exist; television came about through the remarkable interactions of several hundred scientists. Interviews with these scientists, extensive archival research worldwide, and rare photos make this book--and its following volume--the one definitive history and the only authoritative account. Herein are the early inventions, the first devices, early camera tubes, the mechanical era, the kinescope, the iconoscope, and more. There are very extensive references.
