Opens with shots of the original television apparatus now in the South Kensington Museum. The commentator introduces television's inventor, Mr. John Baird, who notes that it has been 12 years now since this apparatus first showed the transmission of outline images to the public. He points out the various components of the equipment and adds that the apparatus was shown to members of the Royal Institution and others on January 27, 1926. The commentator laments the disastrous fire at the Crystal Palace, which destroyed much valuable apparatus. Stock footage of the fire is shown. "Despite that, great strides have been made in 12 years; television pictures have even been shown in airliners" (a television shows a picture of an ocean liner). John Baird returns to the screen, explaining that "today we are able to show television on screens large enough to be shown to a cinema audience, and have recently been able to send wireless television pictures in color."
