Featured Event

A celebration of the work of John Logie Baird

The Evolution of Television from Baird to the Digital Age

John Logie Baird (14 August 1888 – 14 June 1946) was a Scottish engineer, innovator and inventor of the world’s first television; the first publicly demonstrated colour television system; and the first purely electronic colour television picture tube.

Baird’s early technological successes and his role in the practical introduction of broadcast television for home entertainment have earned him a prominent place in television’s history.

On 27th January 2017, the IEEE UK and Ireland Section is holding a full-day event at the Royal Institution of Great Britain to celebrate the first public demonstration of television on 26th January 1926.

This is an invitation only event.
