Lecture: Restoring Baird’s Image

As part of a John Logie Baird season at the Royal Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh during August 2002, I was one of a few guest lecturers invited to present on an aspect of John Logie Baird. Themed on the restoration of the 30-line TV images, I covered television from the 19th century through to the present day, setting the recorded material into context of Britain’s TV development.

Here by popular request, is the Lecture edited down to 36 minutes.
