Alexandra Palace, the home of the B.B.C. The large transmitt

Alexandra Palace as the home of the B.B.C television service in 1936 showing the mast and transmitting aerials for vision and sound. Special tests of reception of the B.B.C from Alexandra Palace of synchronised television and speech were held at Olympia by a committee of the Radio Manufacturers Association. On alternate days transmissions from Alexandra Palace were given by Baird and Marconi E.M.I systems. In 1935 the B.B.C experimented with John Logie Baird's television system and Marconi's E.M.I system. The E.M.I succeeded Baird's in 1937

Guitar string vibrating

Guitar string vibrating. When plucked, the string vibrates at a specific frequency, which determines the pitch of the note. The vertical lines on the fretboard (centre right) of the guitar mark where fingers should be placed to shorten or lengthen the vibrating part of the string. Shortening the string produces a note with a higher pitch, lengthening it lowers the note. The vibration of the string itself does not create much sound, but the strings in turn cause the top plate of the guitar to vibrate, which is much louder. The hole at centre left allows these amplified sound waves to escape
