It's so interesting, the surprise in the olden days of people to see such images appear must have been quite a thing.

30 lines. That's what the BBC now call HD!

I thought she is quite pretty and a nice personality, obviously she is not in the same league as Katie Price but I know which I prefer.

Much nicer than Katie Price for pity's sake And I bet Cass doesn't drive her Range Rover around without insurance (yup, Jordan is one classy lady alright).

TBH I think she (Cass) is really quite attractive, in a non-conventional way.

What was used in the 'flash tube' that they demonstrated outside New Broadcasting House?

The last program may have been the best put together. Overall though this series was too rushed and had too many presenters.

This last program was much better than I was hoping for. They did a good coverage of television and this time at least acknowledged that it wasn't the British that invented everything. No mention of Filo T. Farnsworth or Zworykin though. I enjoyed their explanation of the Baird mechanical system and the Marconi-EMI camera.
