The first public television station was set up by the newly formed BBC. Not only was it the first television station in the UK, it was indeed the first in the world. The system in use was developed by John Logie Baird who first demonstrated it in 1925 and 1926. It was a black and white image and made up of just 30 lines. In1937, the first public broadcasts were started in the US. Only two years later the BBC ceased television broadcasts at the beginning of the Second World War leaving the US as the only major broadcaster for a number of years.
