15. An essential feature was the inclusion of a 'means for breaking up the light'. This consisted of seven transparent cylinders each divided into seven sections which were split up by opaque parts as indicated by black lines. Each section had twice as many sections as the preceeding section and the cylinders rotated at different speeds. The effect of this was to produce alternate 'brightenings and darkenings in the light transmitted across it'. The light was then collected by a lens and projected onto a selenium cell.

Von Mihaly's television transmitter and receiver utilised mirrors for scanning and phonic motors and tuning forks for synchronisation A circular cardboard disc cut from the hat box and pieced with two spirals of small holes formed the Nipkow disc, a darning needle served as a spindle, and bobbins supplied the means of revolving the disc with the use of an electric motor. 20 The birth of television, 1923-1326 On one side a powerful electric lamp shone through the bull's-eye lens on to a little cardboard cross, whose shadow was cast onto the disc.

Baird and W. E. L. Day may draw upon the company for all or any part of this sum (£500) as they mutually agree. The precise sequence of experiments which Baird carried out during the months following the Selfridge demonstrations is not known, but on 2nd October 1925 he noticed that, when he viewed the head of the dummy which he used as an object, in his receiver, there was light and shade: he had achieved crude television by reflected light with tone graduation. Later, in 1931, while giving a broadcast from New York, Baird described this important occasion: In 1925 television was still regarded as something of a myth.
