The Power Of Television

The Power Of Television

Invented in 1926 by Scottish inventor John Logie Baird, the Television has been an incredible, long-lasting creation, having the power to take us to wonderful places where we can experience news, entertainment, sports and real or fictional stories of all kinds.

The first transmission was broadcast by Baird, who later also invented the first colour television.

Television: A Window To The World

This fantastic invention has made it possible for millions of people to watch the moon landing, Olympic games, the Royal Wedding, the World Cup, primetime sitcoms like Dallas or Seinfeld, and more recently the Netflix series Bodyguard.

Television has the power to trigger our imagination, encourage learning, arouse curiosity and bind people together. It is the world's common room where shared memories are broadcast.

TV: The Home Of Many Firsts

Apart from man landing on the moon for the first time in 1969, Television has been a home of many events and first-time broadcasts.

The first interracial kiss was shown in 1968 in a Star Trek (The Original Series) episode. The TV has made us living witnesses to ground-breaking news events like the Iranian embassy siege or the 9/11 attacks.

TV: The Conversation Starter

As TV becomes unimaginably diverse, wild and daring due to the advent of internet giants and on-demand services, it has also become social.

Watercooler talks have more often than not been based on what a particular sports event, news or sitcom was on TV the day before. Important stories usually kick start great conversations and this effect has been amplified with the advent of social media, particularly Twitter.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
