Understanding Television - The Story of TV, Past, Present and Future

Understanding Television describes how the TV revolution has taken place, tracing the development from Scotsman John Logie Baird's new-fangled gadget - tthe first broadcast TV in 1936 - through the Apollo 11 live broadcast from the moon. John Howkins takes a look inside a TV studio, describes how an episode of popular series Upstairs Downstairs was made, and how international news coverage is accomplished etc.

Pretty darn dated.
