 Associated TeleVision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Associated TeleVision Limited, later ATV Network and best known simply as ATV, was a British ITV company from 1955 until 1981.
The company was formed from the merger of the Associated Broadcasting Development Company (known as ABDC and under the control of Norman Collins) and the Incorporated Television Programme Company (known as ITC and under the control of Prince Littler and Lew Grade).
The new company was originally known as the Associated Broadcasting Company (and therefore ABC), but Associated British Corporation's parent company, who wished to call their station ABC and also ran a large chain of cinemas under those initials, successfully sued for prior ownership.

 Television system module with remote control code determination - Patent 5365282
A video recorder, adapted for use in conjunction with a remotely controllable unit associated with television recording and/or viewing, contains a remote-control signal transmitter to transmit control codes to the associated unit, and means to analyze the operation of the associated unit in response to the control codes.
This invention relates generally to television viewing systems employing modules such as VCR's, cable boxes or the like, which are remotely controllable, and more particularly to modules incorporating transmitters for remotely controlling associated modules, and having the capability of automatically determining the remote control codes of the associated modules.
When the associated unit is a cable tuner/descrambler, the video recorder derives a video signal from the R.F. output of the tuner/descrambler and analyzes the synchronization of the video signal to identify the tuned channel.

 Each Hour Of Television Viewing Associated With 144 Fewer Steps
The findings of television's effects on physical activity are the first to be based on objective measurements using pedometers, rather than the study subjects' memories of their physical activity, say the researchers.
To avoid the potential inaccuracies associated with self-reported physical activity, the researchers arranged to have the study participants wear pedometers during their waking hours to count the number of steps they took every day for five days.
In the current study, on an average day, each hour of television viewing was associated with 144 fewer steps walked - or an average of 520 fewer steps a day for those who spent 3.6 hours in front of the television.

 The Beatles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The band's first televised performance was on a program called People and Places transmitted live from Manchester by Granada Television on 17 October 1962.
The award, at that time primarily given to military veterans and civic leaders, sparked some conservative MBE recipients to return their awards in protest, which was widely reported in the British press and was even the lead item on the BBC television news.
The film appeared radical avant-garde by those standards, and instead of showcasing the lovable "moptops"/Beatles as they had been up until then, it showed them as part of the hippie counter-culture of 1967, which was at odds with the British establishment of that era.

Participants were asked how many hours they watched television in a normal day and to indicate their favorite type of TV program.
This study has shown that specific types of TV programming are associated with poorer functioning, yet it is unclear whether watching these programs is a causal risk factor for cognitive impairment or a sign that cognitive impairment has occurred.
Now that this study has shed light on the relationship between television programming and cognition, more research would be useful with sample sizes including men, more extensive questions regarding TV use, and studying how shows affect people over time.
