John Logie Baird

John Logie Baird
(1888—1946)

Inventor of television

Born in Helensburgh, Baird was a serial inventor, devising a diverse range of prod­ucts, from as an all-weather sock to a working television in 1924. He also worked with colour, 3D and the forerunner of what would become the CD. He provided the BBC with its first sight and sound broadcast and its first outside broadcast, of the Derby in 1931.
