Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

Wouldn't be surprised if the 1935 T5 development sets were designed for the 240 line 25 f.p.s. system only and later adapted for dual standard operation.
Baird Television Ltd demonstrated an earlier mirror lid model which might have been the basis of the T5. Pictures of such sets can be found on the internet.
Even J.L.Baird himself conceded that the cathode ray tube was the only practical means of displaying high definition pictures.

The attached picture was posted up at the beginning of this topic.
Compared with the production sets the 1935 prototype doesn't seem to have as many preset controls behind the door.
