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 Bairds television system and Marconis E.M.I system. The E.M.I succeeded Bairds in 1937

EDITORS COMMENTS
Alexandra Palace: The Pioneering Home of the B.B.C. Television Service in 1936 This historic photograph captures Alexandra Palace, the groundbreaking site of the British Broadcasting Corporation's (B.B.C.) early television experiments in 1935 and 1936. The image showcases the imposing mast and transmitting aerials for both vision and sound, paving the way for the B.B.C.'s television service. In 1935, the B.B.C. conducted experimental transmissions at Olympia, using both John Logie Baird's and Marconi's Electro-Mechanical Integrated (E.M.I.) television systems on alternate days. The photograph depicts a significant moment in television history, with the B.B.C. aiming to perfect synchronised television and speech technology. The E.B.B.C's collaboration with John Logie Baird began in 1935, with Baird's mechanical system being the first to demonstrate live television transmissions. However, the E.M.I. system, developed by Marconi, eventually succeeded Baird's in 1937 due to its superior image quality and reliability. The large transmitting aerials at Alexandra Palace played a crucial role in these early television trials. The B.B.C.'s commitment to innovation and exploration led to the establishment of regular television broadcasts in the United Kingdom, which began on November 2, 1936. This photograph is an essential piece of television history, capturing the spirit of innovation and determination that drove the B.B.C. to establish a television service in the face of numerous challenges. The image serves as a reminder of the pivotal role Alexandra Palace played in the development of television technology and the B.B.C.'s enduring commitment to pushing the boundaries of broadcasting.
