Description: You're on Jeopardy, the category is television, the answer is "In 1927 he transmitted the first image via an all-electronic TV system". What is the question? If you don't know, you're not alone. In the half century since its commercial unveiling, television has changed our lives dramatically, revolutionizing the way we view the world. Yet few of us know how it was invented, who invented it, or how it actually works.

Tube: The Invention of Television is a riveting tale of technological and commercial adventure. It tells the story not of a mad scientist working alone in a laboratory but of a group of brilliant minds -- iconoclasts with motivations that ranged from pure greed to the idealistic zeal of invention. Each had one eye on the others as they raced for fortune and scientific glory.
