CBS #1 on Tuesday in the U.S. BBC One #1 in the UK. Seven Edges Nine in Australia.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. From fourth quarter 2012 to fourth-quarter 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Today In TV History

BBC introduced one hour of television on Sundays. Also, the first UK public demonstration of large-screen colour television. Presented as part of variety show to an audience of 3,000 at London’s Dominion theatre by Baird, using a two-colour process giving a 120-line interlaced picture, the programme is transmitted from the Baird studio at Crystal Palace in South London, eight miles away. No longer supported by the BBC, Baird Television Ltd moves to Worsley Bridge Road, Sydenham. The above is a New York recorded transmission from London. This four-minute compilation from 1938 exists only because of a technological fluke and the enthusiasm of two television buffs, one in Britain and the other in America where, thanks to freak atmospheric conditions, it was picked up and recorded on a cine camera placed in front of a television screen as the images came in. Andrew Emmerson, the British enthusiast, spent five years tracking down the recording and believes it is the only surviving example of pre-war live high-definition British television.
