 Kalman Tihanyi (1897 - 1947) - Television Pioneer
The television system, which in the wake of the publication of Kalman Tihanyi's French and British patents of 1928 priority gave new direction to television development, is recognized by historiography as one of the great inventions of the 20th century.

While early television development was dominated by mechanical transmitting - receiving systems well into the 1930's, the idea to employ the cathode ray tube emerged in the first decade of the 20th century - first in Boris Rosing's 1907 patent application for a receiver.

 Sociology and Philosophy Essays: TV & Violence
Belville claimed that "in 1947 television rounded that corner behind which it had lurked for so many years; 1948 will bring this medium sharply into focus as the world's greatest means of mass communication" (Schramm, 1948, p.127).
Because we are protective of our children, and because it is children who watch the most television and (presumably) the most of the violent cartoons, these studies have focused on children.
Not only because television violence is a reality, and aggression is a fact of life, but because an effective social psychology understanding of the relationship between television and behavior may help to not only reduce socially unacceptable aggression, but may actually enable us to increase socially desirable effects.

This site only considers radio receivers from the Murphy company for the most part, however Murphy were also one of the first companies to develop a television receiver for the domestic market.
The first, model A42V from 1937 was a massive set, and it seems likely that very few were sold, particularly as TV transmissions were only available in the London area (transmitted from Alexandra Palace).
It is difficult to imagine Murphy made a profit from its pre-war TV sales at all, but then in 1937 it was not known that WW II would cause TV transmissions to be suspended for the duration of the war.
