A semi-mechanical analogue television system was first demonstrated in London in February 1924 by John Logie Baird with an image of Felix the Cat and a moving picture by Baird on October 30, 1925.
The earliest television sets were radios with the addition of a television device consisting of a neon tube with a mechanically spinning disk (the Nipkow disk, invented by Paul Gottlieb Nipkow) that produced a red postage-stamp size image.
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).

 Baird Television at Crystal Palace
A meeting took place at the GPO on 5 April, 1934, prompted by Reith and attended by BBC and GPO staff, to discuss “the future arrangements for the handling of television”, in which the performance of Baird and EMI systems – as well as some other technologies such as Scophony and Cossor – were compared.
In December 1934, a 10kW VHF transmitter – the most powerful transmitter of its type in the world – was installed next to Studio 3 in the Crystal Palace building, close to the South Tower.
The Television Committee issued its report in late January 1935, proposing a high-definition VHF television service to be operated alternately by BTL and Marconi-EMI, and along with other political considerations, it is certainly possible that Baird was included at least partially to help discourage the company from carrying out its apparent threat to go independent.

 Radio and Television Regulation: Broadcast Technology in the United States, 1920-1960
It is unfortunate, however, that a book about the regulation of radio and television broadcasting, which devotes much of its attention to the various responsibilities and activities of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), never provides a complete and succinct description of the FCC.
One of Slotten's most important conclusions is that because, during the 1920s, "U.S. engineers forged an alliance with the businessmen who paid their salaries," the heavy reliance of the Federal Radio Commission on engineers was based on a false belief that they were unbiased and objective.
The companies that were developing the technology necessary for the creation of a television broadcasting industry wanted to begin earning a return on their substantial investments sooner, rather than later.

Using editorials as one measure of that commitment to public affairs, this research surveyed television stations with network affiliation in the United States to measure attitudes toward the Fairness Doctrine and to determine the extent of editorializing by those television stations.

 The independent producers and the early days of television
Moreover in the early days as the television medium was being defined, SIMPP considered it an important task of their members to be involved in the process that would ultimately determine whether the future of TV was seen as an appendage of broadcasting (radio-with-pictures) or as an extension of motion pictures (movies-in-the-home).
The FCC and Congress backed off of subscription television, afraid of inciting public indignation that television sets were purchased with the understanding that TV was free.
Though SIMPP's efforts were unsuccessful at the time, as the television market matured over the years, subscription television eventually became a reality as envisioned by the independent organization.
