Genesis of television.
The history of television started actually in 1825, when John Logie Baird made a demonstration of moving pictures. That happened at the department store Selfridges in London. His device became known as mechanical television and started a new era in telecommunications history. And then different scientists, one after one started to make different transmissions and finally Karl Braun invented the cathode ray tube that was the main part in the televisions of the twentieth century. This German physicist invented the coupled system of radio transmission and the Braun tube (forerunner of the cathode-ray tube), in which a beam of electrons could be deflected. He was rewarded with Nobel Prize for Physics in 1909. The very first demonstration of Karl Braun' s television took place in 1927. And how could he know that he played a role in such a play titled Telecommunications era and Humans.
