Two TV programmes on Baird

E-mail Print PDF

john_logie_baird381THE BBC showed two programmes in early November 2009 about Helensburgh TV inventor John Logie Baird, one old and one new.

 The new programme was part of the series entitled "The Scots who made the modern world" and a short section of the programme was devoted to John Logie Baird.

“I was asked to appear if I could come to the UK for filming in April, but that was too soon after my previous visit. The narrator was the highly respected Professor Tom Devine.”

The other programme, shown on BBC 4, was entitled "John Logie Baird — the man who saw the future" and it was first broadcast seven years ago.

Professor Baird says that, with all this fresh exposure about his father's achievements, major bookshops will be stocking up on some of the books about him — possible Christmas presents?
