The first operational television was demonstrated publicly by John Logie Baird in Selfridges, a London department store in March 1925. After improvements to the system, the BBC adopted it and began public broadcasting with Baird's system in 1929. The "Televisor" as it was called, used a spinning disc to create an image so it became the first electro-mechanical television.

In the US, Philo Farnsworth is credited with inventing the first completely electronic television, which he demonstrated in 1929. His development removed the mechanical components of televisions and was used when RCA began the first commercial broadcasts of television in 1939 in the US.
