This coming Monday is World Television Day. A day dedicated to recognising the impact television has on people’s lives due to the attention it brings to major global issues. In 2021, it was said that there were over 5.41 billion people who watched TV across the world. The average person is said to watch over 141 hours of TV per month. Which equates to 1,692 hours per year. If individuals were to reach the average life expectancy of 78, then TV would take up nearly 15 years of your life. We will now look a little more into the history of British television.
The history behind British TV:
John Logie Baird, a Scottish inventor and electrical engineer, was the person who demonstrated the first live working television on January 26, 1926. This demonstration was held in front of the Royal Institution. Moving into the 1930s, the first British television drama, Pirandello’s The Man with a Flower in His Mouth, was shown on TV sets. The BBC was the original TV program, but the likes of ITV, Channel 4, and 5 joined later in the 20th century.
Nowadays, people can catch TV shows on demand or record them with a click of a button. But it wasn’t always like that. In 1958, the videotape recording was done, which was the first of its kind. At the start of the 21st century, Freeview free-to-air digital terrestrial television officially began. TV in Britain has changed drastically since it was first demonstrated, which is to be expected given the advancements in technology through the years.
