John Logie Baird

What no television! How would we have coped during these last few weeks without it. For this invention we mainly have to thank John Logie Baird. Today is the 125th anniversary of his birth. Born in Scotland he has a prominent place in the history of television. He is cited as an inventor and businessman.

When he started showing images by wireless, some considered he was a lunatic. Thank goodness for lunatics!
