Happy 75th

According to the BBC today's the 75th anniversary of the first television broadcast.

They didn't know what to call the new technology. One suggestion was "Pictures by Wireless".

Last night I watched a repeat  of the utterly delightful The Road to Coronation Street.  Tempestuous soap star Jessie Wallace is fabulous as tempestuous soap star Pat Phoenix. The director is TV titan Charles Sturridge who made Brideshead Revisited.

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Pictures by Wireless.
Happy birthday to you.
