Television, it has been said, is more interesting than people. Actually, television is people—people, events, culture, entertainment. It is also a pervasive part of our modern lives that has become virtually impossible to ignore. This book chronicles the history of television through the dreamers to the inventors, through the technicians to the talents and through the producers to the stars. It includes all those who envisioned the medium as everything it could be: an educator, an entertainer, a communicator and a marketplace. Here is the story of television’s origins through the eyes of the dream-makers and the businessmen, from its early days through to maturity as a medium of global import. Through text and photographs from The Associated Press, the world’s largest and most prestigious news organization, this book tells fans and critics alike what television was, is and, perhaps, might be. With over 300 illustrations. Published by PORTLAND HOUSE in 1991 and written by NORM GOLDSTEIN.
