This Week in Television History: April 2013 PART II

Listen to me on TV CONFIDENTIAL:
As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history, the more that fact and legend become intertwined. It's hard to say where the truth really lies.
April 14, 1956
First video camera for sound and pictures demostrated. 
The first videotape recorder is demonstrated. The machine, invented by Ray Dolby, Charles Ginsberg, and Charles Anderson, recorded both images and sound. CBS purchased three of the video tape recorders for $75,000 each in 1956.
To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".

Stay Tuned
