How Much Has TV Changed Since 1926? A Lot. | SterlingSatellite Blog - 3 views

    Did you know it took 13 years for television to reach 50 million users? TV has evolved from the time it started with just a few programs airing each day into 24/7 news and hundreds of stations to choose from. People didn't immediately embrace the new technology though. 10 years after its debut in 1936, the head of 20th Century Fox Darryl F. Zanuck (seeing TV as a competitor to movies) famous last words were predicting it would not catch on.  He said he thought "People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night."

Timelines.tv - History, documentary & television on the web - 1 views

  •  
    Timelines.TV is the website companion to a BAFTA award-winning television series. On Timelines.TV you will find four series of documentary videos arranged chronologically. There are three series about British history; social, political, and imperial. There is one series about the American West in the 19th Century. You can browse for videos using the timeline at the bottom of the homepage or use the drop-down menu at the top of every page. I've only had time to watch videos from the American West series, but if the rest of the videos are as good as those that I've watched, Timelines.TV is a high-quality production.
