Scottish electrical engineer and television pioneer John Logie Baird (1888 – 1946) demonstrating his new invention the television with the aid of two ventriloquist’s dummies. Baird was born in Helensburgh and studied at Glasgow University. Baird worked as an engineer at Clyde Valley Electric Power Company but had to retire due to ill health. He used his time to conduct experimental research into the transmission of images and gave a successful public display of his television system in London on 27th January 1926. In 1929 his mechanically scanned system was adopted by the BBC and he provided an improved system five years later. Baird also helped pioneer colour television and stereophonic sound.
