Baird, John Logie

Although many people don't realise it, it was a Scotsman, John Logie Baird who invented what has become a favourite household appliance worldwide. It was the television. With 24 hours of fine entertainment to suit everyone's interests, the television was probably the best invention in the field of entertainment since the theatre.

In 1926, John Logie Baird transmitted the first ever television pictures, and TV was born.

Not as well known is the fact that John Logie Baird worked on the development of radar during the war, which was originally pioneered by another Scot, Sir James Watson-Watt.
