Each title in this series tells the story of a man or woman whose dedication to their chosen cause led to changes that affect all our lives today. Each includes a vivid description of the world in which the famous person lived. This book tells how the television, now a feature of almost every household in the developed world, began life in the front room of its inventor. John Logie Baird had a passion for inventing things. He was also interested in photography, and the narrative describes how it was this fascination with pictures coupled with his interest in the newly invented radio that fuelled his dream of inventing a machine that could broadcast pictures. Accurate illustrations help the reader understand how Baird's invention worked, and the text brings to life the excitement of the first real pictures transmitted in Hastings in 1926.
