History of World Television Day

In 1927, 21-year-old Philo Taylor Farnsworth invented the first Tv set. Until he was 14 years old, Philo Taylor Farnsworth lived in a home with no electricity.

In high school, he came up with a project to capture moving images, transfer them into code and then move the images along radio waves to different devices.

Farnsworth’s system captured moving images using a beam of electrons (basically, a primitive camera). The first image ever transmitted by television was a simple line.

Tv then aired its first broadcast in 1928. In 1938 tv sets became fair market quality.

Televisions at that time were rare in homes as the price of one tv was a bit expensive. The most expensive set on the market at the time was $1,295.

In today’s dollars, that would be nearly $14,000. The number of Tv stations at that time went from 69 to 566.

World Television Day was officially announced by the United Nations General Assembly in December 1996 November 21.

Since then the day has gained popularity worldwide. This was also the day that the first world Tv forum was held and piloting media figures discussed the growing importance of Tv in changing our world.

UN leaders recognized that Tv could raise awareness of threats to peace and security and be a major tool in channeling and affecting the public’s opinion and influence.
