Lunch Talk: The Story of Television (1956)

The history of television produced by RCA in 1956. This is TV history according to RCA, focusing on the technological advances that could be attributed to RCA and de-emphasizing everything else. A lot of TV "firsts" are shown: first president to be televised, first televised baseball game, etc. David Sarnoff talks with Vladimir Zworykin about television's early development at RCA. The last third of the film suddenly breaks into color to talk about the development of color television.
