  Reader's Companion to American History - -RADIO AND TELEVISION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Television constituted a revolutionary change from radio, but its introduction was not as chaotic as that of radio, for an institutional framework already existed.
Television in the 1960s was an agent both of conformity and of rebellion, providing some images that unified America and others that reflected, and sometimes exacerbated, the country's deep racial, class, and gender divisions.
And though television continues to provide viewers with common stories and scenes of events that help construct a sense of national unity, the ideology of television programming, especially the message that limitless consumerism is the most important freedom, has alarming political and cultural implications.

 Television   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Television in its original and still most popular form involves sending images and sound over radio waves in the VHF and UHF bands, which are received by a receiver (a television set).
As a result, up until at least the mid-1970s, television stations would air announcements reminding viewers to unplug their sets before going to bed for the night, since the heat build-up in the back of the set was a considerable fire hazard.
Paralleling television's growing primacy in family life and society, an increasingly vocal chorus of legislators, scientists and parents is raising objections to the uncritical acceptance of the medium.

 J.L. BAIRD "Television in 1932"
First of all we mean by television the process of being able to see, through the medium of electrical methods of transmission, the reproduction of images of living, moving, or stationary objects which are at sorne distance from the observer.
Corning to the process itself, the subjects to be televised are positioned in front of a Baird spot-light transmitter - and explored by a rapidly moving spot of light.
A similar state of affairs exists in France, where Television Baird- Nathan is using the wireless station P.T.T. on the outskirts of Paris for the experimental broadcast of television, and we are now constructing a transmitter for them on the same lines as that being used in Broadcasting House.
