In the UK, it is often thought that television “proper” began with the launching of the BBC Television Service on November 2 1936 from the studios at Alexandra Palace in North London. However, on September 30 1929 an experimental television service from the Baird Television Company began broadcasting using the BBC’s London transmitter (2LO).
