Using patents, published and unpublished documents, and interviews with television pioneers including Zworykin himself, Abramson reconstructs the inventor's life from his early years in Russia, through his stay as RCA's technical guru under David Sarnoff, to his death in 1982. More than fifty photographs show highlights of Zworykin's work. Abramson notes the contributions of other scientists - particularly Zworykin's biggest rival, Philo T. Farnsworth - to the advancement of television. However, he argues, it was Zworykin's inventions that made modern, all-electronic television possible, causing many to award him the title "father of television".

This new edition (which includes six completely new chapters) greatly expands the original and unique historical coverage of this most influential cultural phenomenon.Written by a distinguished international team of specialists, the book describes the history of television from its technical conception in the nineteenth century right through to the bewildering multi-media developments of the present.

All genres of programme making--news, sport, drama, comedy--are examined in the light of keyquestions: how viewing practices affect particular societies; how standards of taste and decency are arrived at; the influence of television of government power; the role of public service broadcasting; and the relationship of television to terrorism and violence. A thought-provoking Epilogueponders the likely impact and influence of television in the coming years.This book is accessibly written and is a major exploration of the world's most dominant medium.QUOTES FROM THE FIRST EDITION`Those who wish to take a close look at the way television has affected the lives of people in other countries as well as their own will find all the information they need here . . . a work which will earn its keep in the reference libraries, but also merits a place on the bookshelves ofindividuals.'

Pioneers of Cable Television

Pioneers of Cable Television

This volume traces the history of cable television through biographical sketches of those who were instrumental in bringing this technology to rural Pennsylvania.

Although there are different opinions about where cable television actually began, a great deal of the ingenuity that developed cable into today’s multibillion dollar industry came from Pennsylvania. In this state, with its mountainous geography, the need for an unusual means of obtaining a television signal gave birth to the community antenna television system that was the forerunner of the cable we know today. This volume traces the history of cable television through biographical sketches of those who were instrumental in bringing this technology to rural Pennsylvania. Enumerating technical as well as financial obstacles, each chapter focuses on the life of a cable pioneer. The contributions of such men as John Walson, Bob Tarleton, George Gardner and Ralph Roberts are discussed and their relationships to each other examined. Information drawn from interviews with these men or people who knew them brings history to life. Topics include the roots of cable television, problems of early cable systems and the advent of HBO and its consequences. An appendix offers a commemorative history of the Pennsylvania Cable Network, a joint project of several men discussed herein.

On a single morning during the golden years of live television, 65 million viewers could say, I saw Mary Martin perform 'Peter Pan' live last night. New York Times critic Jack Gould said, Surely there must be a trace of fairy dust from coast to coast this morning. This is a story of the people, the plays and the performers of a fascinating era in which over 5,000 dramas were broadcast to the largest audiences in history. All of the major series are covered--Kraft Television Theater, Philco-Goodyear, Studio One, Robert Montgomery Presents, Hallmark Hall of Fame, the U.S. Steel Hour, Playhouse 90, and many others. Original research is enhanced by early sixties interviews with many of the most successful live executives, producers and artists, such as Pat Weaver, Hubbell Robinson, Jr., Albert McCleery, Worthington Miner, Rod Serling, and Edmund Rice.
