John Logie Baird (1888-1946), was the first person to transmit moving pictures.
He was born in Scotland and studied electronic engineering at the Royal Technical College, Glasgow, then worked as an engineer, but had to stop because of illness.
Later he started to do research into television. In 1929 he invented the first television system; this could transmit pictures from one place to another.
The pictures were scanned on a screen made up of 240 horizontal lines, and the system was first used by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
In Britain, it was replaced in 1936 by a system which scanned across 405 lines. Now, a 625- line system is usually used. He also experimented with stereophonic sound, color television and three-dimensional images.
