To learn more about the history of TVs
The Kid reads many different articles in newspapers, magazines and online in writing each week’s features.
The history of television technology has generated a wealth of fascinating information which has been captured online, including articles, photos and even the singing jingle “Wow! I’ve bought color TV,” in color with full sound.
Here are key links, which will lead you to many other resources. Each will provide unique information for discussion with teachers and family.
Grandparents and great-grandparents will have great stories about the early days of television, which were quite different from today.
Have fun reading, watching and learning.
