Alexandra Palace, the home of the B.B.C. The large transmitt

Alexandra Palace as the home of the B.B.C television service in 1936 showing the mast and transmitting aerials for vision and sound. Special tests of reception of the B.B.C from Alexandra Palace of synchronised television and speech were held at Olympia by a committee of the Radio Manufacturers' Association. On alternate days transmissions from Alexandra Palace were given by Baird and Marconi E.M.I systems. In 1935 the B.B.C experimented with John Logie Baird's television system and Marconi's E.M.I system. The E.M.I succeeded Baird's in 1937.

Television equipment

The television system developed by the (John Logie) Baird Television Co Ltd, which, along with the Marconi-E.M.I. Television Company system, was tested by the B.B.C. with a view to establishing a London television station. By February 1937, the B.B.C. had ceased using the Baird system, partly due to the lack of mobility of the cameras.
