"And Filo. T farnsworth was an inventor. He was inventing things as a teenager and cluttered winning and National Science and Invention magazine contest at the age of thirteen, he invented tamper-proof lock for the model t ignition switch the next year, his family home got electricity and he converted all of their appliances to electrical power in his teens. He also sketched out a basic concept for a TV controlled the speed and directions of electrons and used. A vacuum tube to create images on a screen that was a scanning electron beam it painted these images line-by-line. He tried to show this to his teacher. His teacher did not get what he was trying to say at all. This was totally different from the other primary television technology. You that was in development at the time which used to these revolving disks, and you had to keep the disk on each side of the transmission synchronized exactly or else the image would be blurry in nineteen twenty seven. FARNSWORTH's started filing patents for his television and he unveiled a prototype on. September seventh of that year, the pictures started out pretty blurry, but he made it better and he kept working on it even after a fire at his lab destroyed a lot of his work. This little device also had a very small scream was about one and a quarter inches square. If you've watched the TV show warehouse thirteen, it's very much like the Farnsworth devices that they use on that show meanwhile while he was doing all of this work on his television invention powerhouse Radio Corporation of America also known as RCA started up a PR campaign that tried to discredit. Farnsworth's inventions and the idea of television in general as just not ready for market RCA tried to promote its own radio technology. Instead, you could not even build your own radio without an RCA license. At this time they also hired an inventor from house to visit Farnsworth lab and try to reverse engineer his designs and Farnsworth, not knowing that this guy was from RCA. Let him in this other inventor was not successful in his whole reverse engineering project though RCA instead made an attempt to buy Farnsworth's work outright but it was a very low offer so he just refused. That's what RCA started up a patent war. The US Patent Office found in Farnsworth favor in nineteen, thirty five. But RCA did not back down they had more money more lawyers and more power than Farnsworth did. So farnsworth finally sold them a non-exclusive for a million dollars. Unfortunately all of this stress seems to have had an effect on his mental health. He had a psychiatric collapse after all of this and he experienced depression for the rest of his life, but he did keep on inventing mostly turning his focus away from television over his lifetime he was granted or named on at one hundred sixty patents, and he contributed to the development of technologies that used radar and infrared as well as electron microscopes and baby incubators. He was awarded a number of honorary degrees and he became head of fusion lab at Brigham Young University in Nineteen Sixty eight he was inducted into the. National Inventors Hall of fame he died of pneumonia in. Salt. Lake City not long after that on March eleventh of Nineteen. seventy-one his wife Pem worked tirelessly to make sure he wouldn't be forgotten.

"farnsworth" Discussed on The Conservative Circus w/ James T. Harris
"Oh this kind of thing happens all the time with Democrats but will Republicans don't do the People's businesses it's Kinda disturbing especially when we had this bill up there that was going to give some protection to small businesses as they try to reopen during the covert crisis the government shutdown a we have our our elected officials who are shut down the legislature yesterday while the rest of Arizona is struggling to reopen the center ring of the conservative circus for the second day in a row. We have Senator Eddie Farnsworth yesterday. When we spoke to you we had hoped that the Senate would approve some protection for small businesses. That you have been working on. That didn't happen and it didn't happen quite quickly. Can you tell US Senator? Farnsworth what how this thing down. Well Good Morning James. Thanks for having me You're correct. It didn't happen. Nothing else happened. The the problem was that when the Senate in on May eight they sign you die. They made a motion the signing die which means to end the session but the house didn't agree the Senate recess but that motion signing di was still on the table so when we opened up yesterday there was an immediate to motion by the Democrats to To vote on that side I motion. And that's what happened. We did. The Democrats all voted to to end the session and there were three. Republicans that went with them gave them the majority that they needed. And they shut down the session immediately. Basically running over the Senate president and and the Republican caucus which means it killed the the liability. Bill Killed The twenty eight other bills that were on online to be voted on. And we would have signed. He died yesterday anyway but we would have done it. After finishing up some of the business it needs to be done including that liability limited liability. Bill that we had now senator Farnsworth. We'd know that Senator Paul Boyer Kate Brophy McGee at Heather Carter word the culprits. What we don't know is why. Why did these three? Republicans join with the Democrats to sign any dye. Well you know. There's there's a lot of speculation and I would. I would say that a big part of it had to do with the fact that they wanted to get out and campaign so once again you have you have three. Republicans who are very much on the more liberal end of the the Republican spectrum and so they're not they're not very far away from the Democrat spectrum anyway so it for them it was. Let's get Outta here. We don't need to do the people's business we need to go out and promote ourselves so that we can keep our jobs in the legislature I believe that that was a lot of it. I also think there was a certain level of tone deafness into what's going on with their constituents and and they quite candidly. You're more concerned about getting re-elected than than listening to what their constituents out there are concerned about the businesses are concerned about the liability. Churches are concerned about the liability. Nonprofits All of these groups are concerned and They they just felt like it. Wasn't that important. Well I gotTa tell you if they're trying to get out so they can go campaign. Their performance in the session is the only campaign that I think their constituents really really care about and I don't think this is going to work in their favor. maybe some of them who may be in some serious trouble or have a someone are running against day. I. I'm just gotTa speechless about the whole thing. I really am senator because this was something that was very important very needed. And I can't understand the tone deafness of this move by three Republicans that are going to put the whole body in some type of a question. That's something but dangerous in the election season. Well I I agree with you I. I don't know either. I've never understood the idea that I need to go out and get reelected even though I haven't done my job so that I can go back and not do my job But that's that happens quite often in this case I think that we have two of them in a very very challenging primary race Senator Boyer does not have a primary. There is a general but the other two have a very have very very difficult primary races and so again like I said this is basically we don't care about about the Republicans. We don't care about small business. We what we care about is preserving our position at the legislature. We need to get out and campaign. Kate Brophy McGee and Heather Carter. They need to lose. I'm just GONNA put that out there. I'm going to put that out there because this is this is no longer. GonNa play the game. As usual we have a we have a Senator Eddie Farnsworth innocent to ring of the conservative circus to one thing. That's bothered a lot of us is the arbitrary. Nature of the governor's executive order and how it turned ordinary citizens into criminals. Mind you some of those citizens are still waiting for their day in court. If if you're called back into session. Is there anything that can be done to curb? The governor's power or does he have all the power to determine what can be considered. I don't think he has even close to the power that that he has exercised. In my opinion there are. There are some executive orders. That are clearly unconstitutional in the state statute under an emergency declaration. He has very broad authority over over the agencies he is essentially the CEO of the Executive Branch and he has authority over the agency's he doesn't have authority to suspend the United States Constitution and to force people to close their businesses to force people to stay home to say that you can't vic somebody off your property that isn't paying their bills He can't give as much as it may be a great policy. He can't give frontline. Healthcare workers qualified immunity. It's not a matter of whether the policies good it's a matter whether the governor can do that that's statutory and he's he's violating the Constitution by essentially creating statutes or executive order. So No I. I don't believe that he has the authority to do. Most of it certainly encouraging zones to to stay home so that they can. We can flatten the curve. So we don't overwhelm the healthcare system. I think people voluntarily did that when he asked and so that that is a positive thing and we did flat curve. But I don't think we had to shut down the economy and I don't think we had to have mandates and we certainly didn't have to threaten the people with jail..

"farnsworth" Discussed on The Conservative Circus w/ James T. Harris
"Law. Didn't go as far as this bill. That bill did not require that there be a criminal conviction and this is what most people in in the state don't understand if someone is pulled over and and accused of or belief. There's there's a belief by police that somebody who's committed a criminal action under current statute that that That government entity can take your property your private property and they can convert it to government ownership and use without ever filing a criminal action against you. This is taking of properties and stealing property without ever having to show that you committed a crime. This has been a problem state for for a number of years because a pops up every now and then and I I was kind of keeping my eye on this because I was wondering if it went through. How many feathers going to be ruffled and not? You're kind of. You're kind of explaining that you know this not going to be popular in you name. The name names here so I guess my question is going to be. Is this something you going to try to pick up again in the next session? I'm off into the legislature will do this. There is a strong push across across the country to route and the distinction between still bill this year and the bill twenty seventeen. This year would require that that law enforcement convicted before they they can convert your property before they can take your property so it's a conviction prior to. I have no doubt that Next year not being an election year more people will be willing to support it. The politics won't be as great and there will be those that will take it up and and I believe that it will get through last question for you Senator Farnsworth. The governor has been surprisingly unsupportive of this liability bill that came out of the legislature last week. However it has to be one of the most important bills I think the legislature could pass right now. What would explain anyone not wanting to support this bill? Well again politics Because of the because of the stay at home order there are those that believe that part of the bill. That says that we're going to decriminalize action of anyone who went out and opened up their business early contract to the executive orders which again we can discuss whether those executive orders constitutional not but this would decriminalize action. You remember in his. In his press conference he talked about. They could go to jail for up to six months. Twenty five dollars license. Yes correct so our bill addresses bad and doesn't take away penalty decriminalizes that penalty and says you can't lose your license. So he doesn't like that because he thinks it takes away his authorities the governor to do whatever he wants and they're those in the legislature that think that it pokes the governor and the I my personal opinion is I drafted the bill and then worked with Representative Kavanagh who sponsored it in the House and my personal opinion is this is consistent with what the governor wanted which was to have voluntary compliance to flat and the curve. But for some reason this has turned into something other than flattening the curve and And that's the concern that they have. It's all politics..
"farnsworth" Discussed on Transition Virginia
"And we're back and I'm really excited to talk to Stephen Farnsworth about his new book late night with trump political humour and the American presidency. What does this book about? And why did you run? Well I've written a lot of traditional news and how they cover elections how they cover governance but one of the things that I kept hearing for my students was their connection to these comedy programs and there is a time in two thousand sixteen. When I thought there's a book here my co author George Mason Bob Lichter and I thought that Donald Trump win or lose would be an amazing conversation about how political humor has changed how it's evolved because there's no doubt about it. Donald Trump is getting so much more attention as president and as a presidential candidate than the other predecessors democratic and Republican. Both and so we were really really convinced there was something qualitatively different about Donald Trump. Who by the way comes out of reality television himself and the way that he's being treated on late night and basically When trump was elected well. That's another chapter. That's another aspect of this presidency. Because no doubt about it. Donald Trump is fixated by late night humor and late night humorous fixated on Donald Trump. Every time he tweets or complaints about the Alec Baldwin Imitation on Saturday night. Live the ratings. Go up the attention increases. Now we're on radio so people can't see this chart that we're looking at here in your office but it examines jokes. Told about Democratic presidential candidates versus jokes told about Republican presidential candidates. The Democratic Blue Line here on your graph is kind of flat line right around four hundred jokes per year about the Democratic presidential candidates the Republican the red line here represents Republicans goes up every every year with one exception. Looks like two thousand twelve. Goes down a little bit. I guess that would be the wrong Romney election okay. So fewer jokes told about Romney Than than the others but then the next presidential election it spikes way up and I guess that we're looking at the trump effect here. What did you learn from this huge spike in jokes told about DONALD TRUMP? What we learned from that well first of all. It's important to recognize that these folks who are offer up late night comedy. You're not journalists. They don't have any obligation to be objective but they have an obligation to do is make money for the television networks and so this is where I mean. Well that's how they make money. It doesn't get continued right. So what you see here with this with this is a very clear orientation towards late night comedy that is more critical of Republicans that reflects the audience if it were otherwise. Then you'd see a difference but I do think there's a format issue here. I mean I think conservative struggled with late night comedy. They tried to create a program on Fox. News that was sort of like the daily show but even among the Fox News viewers. They didn't watch it and it disappeared after thirteen weeks or so late night. Comedy Hour Half Hour Comedy Hour. What you're talking about this. You could win Trivia night at the local pub with that because it came in when you Larry quickly came and went very quickly but the reality is that liberals have struggled to make a go of it on Talk Radio. I think talk radio and twitter is those vehicles that are very very effective for attacks for personal attacks and Donald Trump in some ways. We could describe him as an insult. Comedian who happens to be president. He I think is a master at those kinds of venues. I don't think he's so effective with respect to the the late night. Conversation on the way up Donald Trump became a reality television star and he was a regular guest on these late night programs but once it became a presidential candidate and then president amount of attacks on him a really really Really really intense and and so all he really does is complaining and his own venues about this but I think ultimately remember good comedy is the saying Goes Punches up pad comedy punches down and so I do think that when you're thinking about the arguments that That Republicans are making in the political environment. Today they're not well suited to late night comedy. They're much more. I think suited to To Talk Radio I suppose one could imagine joking about people on Welfare and people who are homeless and children living in cages on the border but I cannot imagine that there's a mass audience for that kind of humor. It's not very funny but it is funny. If you're taking a bite out of somebody with money and power and influence I mean this goes all the way back to the ancient Greeks when they were making fun of the powers that be when in medieval courts. You know the gesture had this space of play. That allowed the gesture to make fun of the monarch and not get his head chopped off usually and that is a is a dynamic that stays with us throughout time one of the ways in which I think we deal with the fact that politicians often disappoint is that we can make fun of them. At least we can't necessarily remove them. We can't necessarily change their direction but we can at least make a joke. I hadn't really thought about this distinction between talk radio versus late night. I'm interested in that distinction. Because if you think about someone like rush limbaugh he's likes to see himself as kind of funny and Jokester and he's there are gags that he regular gags he does on his show and Is He someone that you've sees the as possibly a comedian that is able to target Democrats and Liberals Well? I think the major theme of Conservative top radio and Limbaugh's included. Is this sense of outrage. There's the change in the world. That is not appealing and that sort of intense. Anger doesn't necessarily play well on late night. Comedy where things are really kind of a joke and that creates a a difficult environment for for that to translate well again if you try if you try it on Fox News and you can't succeed with Fox. News viewers conservative late night. Humor is still a challenge. We know that Donald Trump is a gift that keeps on giving the shows get plenty of viewers and of course. They're not just watching it at late night. They go on Youtube and they look the next day. That clips are part of the political discourse It's how things play in. Peoria the twenty twenty version of Nixon's old admonition. The reality is that if you are being ridiculed on late night comedy. That's a potential problem. You also took a rather analytical look at what? The jokes were about the subject matter of the jokes. What did you learn from your analysis of the actual jokes? Themselves they were about. There are significant number of voters particularly voters under thirty. Who say that. They're learning about politics from these late night. Comedy shows and you know that's not necessarily a bad thing on its own right. I mean if you if you think about people who don't pay much attention to politics and then they hear some jokes and they say well. Maybe I need to learn more about this issue or that issue so that it's I can get the joke. I mean Mitch. Mcconnell is a joke about Mitch. Mcconnell is not funny. If you don't know who Mitch. Mcconnell is or what he looks like or what he does and so there is. Maybe a spoonful of sugar dynamic Too late night comedy. Getting people who don't care that much about politics maybe more interested and more informed but one of the things that we saw pretty consistently across these late night hosts that we looked at is. There was a lot of conversation about Russia with respect to trump. There was a lot of conversation about sexual misconduct is related to trump the paying off a porn stars and all that And there were also of course other areas too. Because I Stephen Colbert wants. Put it The comedy lives in between what is and what the politician says. It is explained that. What does that mean? Well think about North Korea for example. You know once upon a time. The president trump said that North Korea would experienced fire and fury of the likes of which the world has ever seen. Well that sounds like world war three. That's not funny necessarily but then it becomes like a buddy movie a bromance if you will when trump and Kim Jong Un. They have these summits and they have these agreements. And they. They're all buddy buddy and now of course you know North Korea's testing again and so it looks like a romance is on the rocks but the reality is that comedians found something funny about all of these changes all these differences because What Donald Trump does is exactly what. A comedian wants the inconsistency the extreme rhetoric and of course the larger than life persona all. These things are comedy gold. I'm also curious about change over time. Here we're looking at. Your graph starts in nineteen ninety two and ends in two thousand sixteen Obviously the field of late night television changed a lot and that time period. What what did you see in terms of change over time? You know one of the things that I do. Is I show my students a clip of Johnny Carson making fun of Ronald Reagan in the nineteen eighties. And you saw how team it was compared to where we are today. Johnny Carson understood the audience of his time which was far less partisan power less combative than the audience of today and he dealt with and he offered up what worked in his time. It absolutely wouldn't work today and so what you see is kind of a downstream effect if you will as as our political culture has gotten closer as our divisions have gotten greater as our political combat has gotten more intense comedians. Reflect that and so you know a few jokes about Dan. Quayle and how we could spell potato or not Just simply wouldn't cut it today. Now it's all about Donald trump selling the country to the Russian says as some comedians would offer up to us or not having a sense.
Electronic Television: The TVs of The Future
"We are. Currently I think a lot of people would say living through the golden age of television in terms of the quality and the quantity of shows that are Out there you are scholar of the medium and scholar of the technology itself. I'm curious what you see. As the connection between technological psychological breakthrough sort of happened and the development of the actual content that we see on those screens. You have any thoughts on that we could start at the current moment right. I mean in terms of the way in which networks are producers have to respond to both kind of changing industrial conditions like the challenges to traditional networks new distribution services how streaming services actually changed the way that not only is content delivered but then what kind of genres actually seem best within that context and so often I talked to my students about you. Know How do they view. What do they consider intimate viewing and so it both is about the actual genre the kinds of formats and the programming? But also. Oh it's about the technology itself so they'll talk about how viewing on an IPAD is more intimate for them and that they pick particular genres to view in that intimate context so dramas that they have to concentrate more on our things that they would watch on their IPAD. Things that they watch on big screens are things that they want to watch. What their friends traditional television network programs sitcoms like a good place Game of thrones of course because they WANNA have all the sort of detail of the screen. So it's a combination of both the viewing practice the screen itself and then the kind of industrial and technological conditions. The moment my son was watching for a while wilde his my oldest son this so this is appropriate. It's not like he's seven was what was watching. Game of thrones on his phone and I was like that is just a terrible injustice to visit experience. No you can't do that. You have to see a lot of excrete and then eventually came around. But the other thing that I thought about a lot is the ability to both binge-watch but also to re-watch right but kids today forget I mean when when I grew up on fifty one when I grew up we didn't have VCR's even much less streaming and so things just aired pretty much once and then there would be like a rerun in the summer and that was it you would get two passes at it and you had to watch it. You couldn't posit. You can do anything like that and so it put a ceiling on the complexity of the kinds of stories. You could tell because people could only take in so much they couldn't go back and re watch it again to figure out what happen right. What's you could tape something and then once you could stream it will once you could binge-watch it suddenly the kinds of stories? You're able to tell really got more complex. Yes absolutely I mean I think think about lost as this kind of transition moment to about like how they even. I don't know if you remember when they tried to do reruns of lost and they had to put captions on the bottom him to explain how the what would happen before because people couldn't kind of remember it was seen as such a complex narrative and it just didn't work in reruns right and so that would not be a problem now so you can tell these kind of very complex stories but it's fascinating to me that kind of toggle between different attention levels so some the students to where I just had my first class yesterday of the semester and they were talking about how often it's difficult for them to only watch something on their screen that they want to also so you know chat on their on their phones or whatever and so that. They put in sort of safeguards for particular programs so that they will only watch and so they're capable of doing that right. It's now these various contexts. Viewing we have all sorts of sizes and types of screens for viewing. So I think that's not just a new thing and so thinking of the history of Color Television in is also related to those kinds of issues chain so I want to make sure we go back and talk about the history because we were just immersed in early days of what was effectively black and white television television than Farnsworth was working on. TV The next big breakthrough after that is really colored TV. And you've written about this. At length was the first kind of most most promising attempt to what was the first hint that colored. TV was coming. Well it's interesting because color. TV was always the development was kind of running alongside black and white but it was a more complex technology to develop you know just to manage the various technical aspects it would require eventually a larger bandwidth and it just was also also more difficult to manage and control to get color right severi early on it was sort of seen as this is a maybe a novelty that will eventually become something that is what what everybody watches. It's the eventual place. We're going is color because that would be the full sensory experience yet. Black and white would probably be the first standard and and so we have a moment in late twenties where we see demonstrations of color. John logie Baird in the UK. And Herbert Ives at Bell Labs and the US demonstrating color player and people being very impressed with it. So that's kind of a big moment Like a successful color television system reporters are writing about it and so it's what year period of seven hundred eighty nine. Yeah so color. I'm just thinking about color. Film is like wizard of Oz. That stuff is thirty. Eight thirty nine. Yes but so really. The history of color film people will talk about how it's really always had colored handpainted color film and so forth so again that was always we've seen is that would be the complete experience sound color movement rate for both mediums. In a way. When do we start to see things? That aren't just kind of science. Experiments elements where people are actually like they were building actual sets in their starting to talk about how we could get these into consumers homes. Well there's a period in the forties it starts with the competition four four. What would become a working color television system? That often was talked about as a practical color television system that could be commercialized really intensified and that's when RCA starts it's getting involved in it too about Amir's workin starts working on it as well as CBS well in there becomes this sort of competition there's other inventors and that's of course I'm sure you talked about with black and white televisions not just one in bitter right. It's this kind of complex story about patents and industrial competition and individual inventors and inventor's that are working for major companies and so that happens with colored television as well but we also have World War Two. That breaks it up Chris. Paul and so it's not not until the late forties early fifties that we start to see the industry getting together to start coming up with a standard and so various companies are competing to be the standard tendered for us color television so the first commercially available color TV sets show up in the fifty in the fifties. There's a brief brief moment were CBS's. I awarded the standard and then it goes to RCA WHO's the parent company of NBC so NBC starting in Nineteen Fifty Three. They are the only network. That's really taking color as this. Is Our project. This is our brand. Eventually that's why they have the peacock rate as the funding the logo and and it's also point of identification. Of course that this is brought to you in living color was away for you to know that you're missing something. This program in particular is in color Unusually it was some kind of spectacular. Something that you would actually want to see in color and then the reviews were all describing it like oh this Peter Pan Spectacular. It's only really worth it if you you were seeing it in color. Because they of course gave color TV sets to all the reviewers as well and they were different places in the fifties where RCA placed color TV set so that people people had exposure to it because color TV sets were around two thousand dollars when their first release in and quickly went to like five hundred but still in there. What's out roughly in? Oh I don't know the translation a lot and so the black and white sets which has only gone in the market in the late forties and we're just starting dissemination. Were more like two hundred right so they were already a big item color. TV was a big luxury so that was seen as a high end luxury items. You had to be sort of an early adopter to maybe do it. And you had to have a reason as a consumer to really want to see it right as you were just getting used to black and white and this was part of the discussion to consumers had just been sold. Black can wait television. And then these color systems were coming out and sew. CBS did not have a compatible color system. Which is color system that you could transmit in color and would be picked up also at black and white and so that was some of the issue and NBC made this kind of public interest argument? That people had just bought these sets. Why should they now make? Those was useless. So we're developing a compatible color set which was allowing you to do it either way you can broadcast in EP of black and white set. That's great it'd be of color set. You can pick it up and color in terms of the content pioneers Disney. Did some early influential work with color. Right he was one of the typical were Disney. He was one of the early adopters the format so that was that the wonderful world of Disney. That was I called the wonderful world of Colored Disney had been working with ABC in the fifties and then they moved to NBC purposely for color. Because they're yes. His Ni saw himself as a if you could go back and watch the first episode sexually available on on Youtube and he presents himself and the studio as a an innovator in all these different ways I we brought sound to film than we were the first with animated films films to bring color and then now here we are and we're bringing teller to
Electronic Television: The Great Depression And The World's Fair
"It's nineteen thirty. The world is stuck in the early stages the great depression many Americans lift their spirits at the new moving picture shows in theaters and nickelodeon 's Buster Keaton Charlie Chaplin comedies. These films are often introduced with Mickey mouse cartoons or newsreels one newsreel in particular dazzles the audience with the promise of soon bringing these new moving picture shows into their very own homes presents. A backstage preview television the newest miracle of modern Electrical Engineering Mr penalty shown shown at the right is working on the image dissect to photoelectric camera. Tube of his own invention that distinguishes his system of television from others. It is said to be responsible for the most clearly defined television pictures placed in the second of this receiving system is a funnel shaped cattle due the round flat surface of its bulb becomes the picture screen in Studio Monitor. It does it as well. As in home receiving sense the image detector Tube and the Cathode Ray tube are the heart and brain system. Television Vilo Farnsworth's image to sector tube and camera system had finally brought the long anticipated picture radio into being station equipment. The electrons become radio impulses to broadcast and picked up by receiving sense where the routine is with us. The radio impulsive becoming points of light that appear on the screen as picture thirty pictures. I completed every second. These earliest television programming was live performance music and sound accompanied. The OBAMAS was action both visible and audible elements going on the air in perfect synchronization battling with the speed of light to amaze of tubes and equipment. The show leaves the station send the towers viewed by the television public and audience as yet small and comparatively ignorant of the research and experiment. That makes it possible rush to see and hear people many miles away watching this newsreel in the movie theater. The audience is intrigued but sceptical. The most fanciful dream of mankind is day startling reality destined to become the world's most popular science in one thousand nine thirty in San Francisco. Two years have passed since Filo funds worth with help from his wife. Pam Gardner and her brother cliff triumphantly showed off off a working prototype of electronic television. Violence picture was on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle under a headline that called him a genius is name was being being mentioned in newsreels magazines journals and the Associated Press but he hadn't yet found a manufacturer to partner with so financially files fortunes agents hadn't changed Penn gave birth to their first son. Filo T farnsworth third the previous year and a second son. Kenny would follow in nineteen thirty one but now a curious envelope in the days male brings a new possibility. You got a letter here. Filo says it's from New York I can't believe. RCA is offering one hundred thousand dollars for the image sector would. That's wonderful that exactly pam they want to own it outright i. It's not ideal but one hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money. Not compared to what television will eventually be worth. It's a mistake to cash in too soon like this. We have to keep the faith. I understand. Filo it's your invention that's Pammy. It's not it it never was. It's it's all of the great minds that have come before to make this possible. And it's you it's cliff. All of us were a team but they wanna buy our work and call it. There's it's just not fair. They can license it if they like. I've spent my entire life working towards this Pam. It's like it's like trying to sell one of our children. The Lord will provide Filo a a few weeks later. The farnsworth's receive another big opportunity with visit to the lab from United Artists. The Film Production Company was Silent Age Film Stars like Charlie the chaplain. Douglas Fairbanks D W Griffith and Mary. PICKFORD PICKFORD is especially enthusiastic. We just had to see this amazing new television system. We've heard so much about it. But when the time comes the image to sector won't cooperate Filo is rattled. I I'm sorry folks. This is humiliating million chaplain smiles. Don't sweat it. I've seen worse like Douglas's latest picture a few hours later. After the stars leave cliff finds the problem on a wire wasn't plugged in it. Was that simple Dan. How did I not see that Pam tries to reassure him? Mary Pickford was here. We were all a bit distracted. It did keep the faith Filo when a third opportunity knocks a few weeks later Filo is determined to answer the call this time. FILC who radio in Philadelphia. They they they want to license the Patents Fund our research. But it'll still be ours with some help Vilo at Phil Co so in Philadelphia moving from the bay area to the city of brotherly love. What do you think it sounds great? And so the Farnsworth family packed packed their bags with their belongings precious equipment and board a train to head across the country to Philadelphia Pennsylvania. His family counting on him. Kylo could only pray he was making the right decision.

RCA @100 with Tim Sarnoff
"Whether you're an established name a brand new startup right. Now has a television this listen to the radio. <hes> has played a record. Well thank R._C._A.. For that or C._A.. Is a name that many of us older folks oops remember. They were so dominant the <hes> the company was started by David Sarnoff. I am sitting here with Tim Sarnoff David Sarnoff grandson to talk about the legacy of R._C._A.. which is now a hundred years old? Tim Come a little closer to me and just re just spit out some of the multiple dimensions that came from R._C._A.. Well R._C._A.. Back in nineteen nineteen was really focused on radio and what was important about radio radio in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred and it's hard for people to sort of grasp a world without it but before radio the only way you got news was through either the newspaper which was mostly local newspaper or walking not driving. I'm walking to the nearest town and the average person only walked one day away so the news you got was as close as one day aways walk and frankly when radio came along it brought the world to everyone so significant invention initially was to bring the world to everyone's living and between Nineteen nineteen through nineteen twenty six that was sort of haphazard until N._B._C. was created under our C._A. and it. It was the first network to bring the news from all over the world into your living them R._C._A.. Sold the first radio had the first network that actually spawned the set on the second network which was A._B._C.. That's that's true. It was <hes> the red network in the Blue Network and then a year later was C._B._S.. <hes> so there were three dominant networks there were a number of them that came up and disappeared over fifty year period but those were the three that basically were maintained until cable came along and had the first TV well R._C._A.. During that time in Nineteen twenty-three started developing the T._v. with his work and on the side were a number of other inventor inventors. There was Farnsworth who was inventing a version of of <hes> electronic T._v. and all of the functions of those inventions had to be culminated into a business so the real invention of T._v. wasn't the T._v.. Itself but the business to actually manage the T._v.. The broadcast system that had to be set up there was an antenna that was put up on the Empire State Building that was the structure of creating call letters and times for the <hes> stations to actually not interfere with each other there was the advertising system television was more than just a box television was an industry industry and R._C._A.. Spent about fifty million dollars from nineteen twenty three to nineteen thirty nine to develop the first television business and then there was records and record player well yes of course C._A.. Had acquired through Marconi Tony Victor talking machine and Victor Records and they also owned R._C._A.. Music Label R._C._A.. Also was very much focused in newer high technology so when the tube which was probably one of the greatest inventions. Inventions of the twentieth century was vacuum tube and that allowed all sorts of other inventions to occur until silicon chip came along and the semiconductor in the second half of the twentieth century and it was able I'll bet enabled everybody to miniaturize all of the pieces of the electronics so that you could fit an entire world of electronics inside a small box during the thirties and forties after television was starting to really really become a reality for the rest of the world are then spent a disproportionate amount of its treasure about one hundred million dollars to create color television to add little fidelity in reality to television system and even in the sixties sixty s when television was ubiquitous across pretty much everywhere the notion of trying to slimline the television by creating a liquid crystal display rather than having it in a tube and the notion of trying hi to transfer with fiber rather than just over the air and the notion of setting it up on satellites rather than having it go terrestrial. We're all focused as R._C._A.. From the fifties sixties and early seventies and then G._e.. Bought R._C._A.. In the eighties and today day R._C._A.. Is a memory for many of us even though the brand name is owned by technicolor. You'll talk about that in a minute but what happened what happened R._C._A.. Why did it fall apart well? It didn't fall apart. It was acquired. It was acquired by G._e.. And and what G._E.. Acquired was R._C._A.. And all of the companies owned underneath the banner which included N._B._C. and Hertz rent a car and banquet foods and say records and R._C._A.. Records and <hes>. Patents thousands and thousands of patents for inventions that are C._a.. Had created over the first half of the century and there were <hes> many people who still thought of R._C._A.. From what what it was which was sign of quality and invention and there are many

I was like wait a second Farnsworth. I remember you Bill, but he wanted to fight that guy sack. I I was like he didn't have an epic fight where somebody tried them. And I found the fight isn't a mixed martial artist of some sort like, he got off the mound. I remember him coming up the mound one time, and he was one of those echo morph. So he's just like physically looked different most people rip. Biceps six foot four. This guy looked every bit as intimidated stepped off the mound looking for fight. Yeah. And it was like this handsome guy had Clark Kent vibes because he wore glasses and not like the Chris Sabo specs. I'm talking like regular glass any through one hundred miles. He was wearing Puka shell necklaces Nolan. Ryan would have wiped the floor with foreign, oh, you know. Cryan not orange worth is the most chisel relief pitcher of all time.

"Is weird. What did you think of our her coming in and being a part of this? And the men basically like like, we're not treating you any differently Arcadio super kick on this. I was a little surprised that they had them do moves on her. You know, the their finishing moves on her thought, maybe she would come in. She would. Throws couple of guys around is. She gets thrown out. And that would be it. Right. I'm surprised they as far as they did. Because of the time we live in and they've they've gone to the point where they're completely separating men and women. Well, I shouldn't say that they're they're allowing women to beat up on the men, but the men cannot like it's like hands off don't even know. Talk about the antiquated whatever like we're all raised not too. Yeah. Hit women, and that's a good policy. Like, we it doesn't mean that we view them as lesser human beings or anything like that. You're not supposed to we're all raised that way and stuff. So I thought initially her coming out was pretty cool. Again, another wrestler that I don't have an attachment to. So it lacked a little bit of the star power. But certainly it was cool to see that. But then when she starts getting manhandled by Randy Orton, and others just like is a weird kind of thing going on here. But I thought overall it was a cool idea. The the single fight that I was looking forward to turned out to be one of the lamest. I thought was Finn. Ballard and Brock listener. I thought that one I thought that was going to be this epic back and forth. And it was like no fin hit a couple of great moves. And then Brock was like, I'm done with you. And now is it. Mean the Becky Lynch fight with. Osco at the beginning took like forty five minutes. Yeah. Is it forever? And then Brock listener imbalance of like, three minutes. Part of the whole Oscar thing is they're building Oscar backup to what she was in the development of an is they kinda they kinda knocked her down and said, you're beatable you're now they're building your backup to be legit champion. So that they can have her on smackdown. Becky, Lynch and all them, we're gonna move over to raw. Oh, yeah. I see boiler, right? Yeah. I just I wanted to see seena. I wanted his injury to be fake. It was there. Yeah. You just couldn't see right? Well done. I can't I can't top that. So I'm just gonna go ahead. And and let it ride thanks to Brent Brigham and Sam farnsworth's for joining us.

"Tweet. As I'm finishing up. My Twitter response Anthony. Tweets at Farnsworth than I do you see a world where the Broncos traded for a Joe flacco, obviously, the ravens have said that they're willing to deal him if it would help him out. And if that would be his his preferred path, of course, he did help the ravens win a Super Bowl. I I don't see it. And it's not because Joe flacco would be an upgrade from case keenum. I do believe that. The Broncos are kind of in a way, they're stuck with case keenum for a couple of different reasons. One is because why actually it's the only reason he makes a lot of money. Flacco makes a lot of money Broncos can't afford both. So now, you're gonna have to unload keenum in order to take on flacco sizable contract. Are you even willing to take on flacco sizable contract for an upgrade? But how much of an upgrade like we've been talking about today so much about this this alternate reality where Kirk cousins becomes a quarterback of the Broncos, according to Woody page, Kirk cousins is a bigger upgrade over case keenum that Joe flacco is at this point in his career. So I think the ravens last too much. I think he may. Makes too much money. I think the Broncos won't be able to turn around and unload, case keenum. And let's be honest too. If a team like the Jags or the giants. They'll pay more than the Broncos. Well, I promise you, they will especially you know, the Jags go with like Kylo Murray or Justin Herbert they decided to sit him for years. So they'll play flacco to try not to waste this defense that they have. I just think that the Broncos aren't willing won't be willing to answer. Both the asking price in terms of a draft pick. But also wanna pay flacco that much and at the same time be able to unload, case keenum, all in one Faust swoop. You guys don't believe in John Elway that much. I don't know that I do either. So no, I knew not see Joe flacco with the Denver Broncos next year. By the way, the twelve days of ticks.

And meanwhile, were to put television in time out because all manufacturer of non-military electron IX was banned by the government for the duration of the war. When the war ended, the Farnsworth corporation was making its home in Fort, Wayne, Indiana, and it started to produce television sets, but RCA had the resources to launch a much more successful manufacturing operation arns worth. Just couldn't keep his company afloat. It was eventually purchased by international telephone and telegraph company and under IT and t Farnsworth continued his research into television as well as nuclear fusion, the television division was shut down before very long though. Yes. So. At that point farnsworth's work in television, had basically been shut out a little bit by big business. You know, he had battled RCA. And while he tried to still kinda struggle with a little small part of the market. It wasn't going to work out. And so when he sold his company thinking he was going to bolster his his television work. They were like, no, we don't really want to be in the TV business after all. So he was shut out of television at that point. But he kept on inventing, and he certainly kept on studying science in nineteen fifty one. He was awarded an honorary doctorate of science by the Indiana institute of technology. Yeah. Which was his first degree since he did not ever finish college in nineteen fifty seven. He started the Farnsworth research corporation as its president and director of research in nineteen sixty seven he moved back to Utah and became head of fusion lab at Brigham Young University and just a year later that lab actually changed. Names to Filo t Farnsworth in associates, and it moved to Salt Lake City, but within two years funds had dried up for the lab in nineteen sixty eight he was awarded his second honorary doctorate this time from Brigham Young University, and he was inducted into the national inventors hall of fame. Nineteen seventy really marked the beginning of the end for Farnsworth as we mentioned, the lab was running out of money, and he was forced to close it due to the lack of funds and at that point the depression that he had really been battling for decades had really started in the in the thirties going through all of that. Battling with RCA and patent suits. And then having to deal with the war offsetting their efforts, the depression just kind of one out at that point. And he started drinking and drinking heavily, and it really became a habitual drinking problem in the last few months of his life. He died of pneumonia on March eleventh, nineteen seventy one in Salt Lake City when he died the televisions that were being made for consumer markets. Used components that were included in about one hundred of his patents. Although he really didn't have any wealth to speak of on the other hand Sarnoff died the same year, but very wealthy. Extremely wealthy. So what I have to say about that. He didn't take it with him. That's true. Yeah. I mean, it is kinda one of those things where Farnsworth in so many ways was in the right, but it really did him. No good. Even though he won the patent lawsuit. And even though he made that big settlement with RCA that money went towards funding alab that was really struggling and didn't didn't turn out. So well in terms of his his end of life quality. But after his passing his wife, Pimm really worked tirelessly to try to establish her husband's image in a positive way. And ensure that he was recognized as the visionary that he really was and Farnsworth really gave them a great deal of credit throughout his life for his most famous work, and he would often say that my wife, and I started television, and they had worked together pem it worked alongside her husband throughout his life in his various labs, and as he often became really engaged with his work. He would forget to eat. He would. Neglect think about his health. He apparently had this weird habit where he was an insomniac. So at night, he would go to bed and kind of give himself a problem to solve knowing that he would wake up and hoping that he would be working through it in that sort of half sleep state like he really kind of was not doing things that were great in terms of like his quality of health as he went on. But Pam was always the constant that kind of kept their lives in order to spite his sort of odd behaviors and his tendency to get really over absorbed into his work. In nineteen Eighty-one his two oh to green street address in San Francisco, which was home to the lab where the first televised image was projected was given a historical marker. There's also a memorial statue of Farnsworth at the Letterman digital arts center in San Francisco in nineteen ninety the state of Utah gave the national statuary hall collection in Washington DC, a statue of Farnsworth by artists James our body, which has the inscription. Father of television. Yeah. Turned love in two thousand eleven he was inducted into the San Francisco hall of fame and in two thousand thirteen he was inducted into the academy of television arts and sciences hall of fame in his life. He had held at least one hundred and sixty patents. He contributed to the development of many other things which we are actually relevant to you know, other recent podcasts we've been working on. He worked some of his work contributed to the develop. Out of radar infrared electron microscopes baby incubators. So when you go to like, the ICU or the newborn ICU, the Nick you those incubators are in part due to the work that Farnsworth did. And even astronaut Michael telescopes and Pimm died in two thousand six but their kids have continued this tradition of kind of keeping his image alive. And well, there was also a in two thousand four they announced a screen play. A new line cinema had optioned the screenplay from Aaron Sorkin about the wife of Farnsworth, which never came to fruition. And in two thousand five Sorkin adapted it to the stage, and it's been produced a couple times. And maybe we'll even actually go full circle and become a film again. But if it ever does I feel like I should pre warn people that it's it's the not historically accurate like that was not the intent no changed for dramatic effect their musical. I feel like there's a musical. I hope not there might be the opposite. You're like I hope not because singing, and I'm like I hope so because the singing yet, I'm not the biggest fan of musicals. There's nothing wrong with them. It's my personal. I don't like to watch people sing don't like to look in their mouths thing. I know that's my weird neurotic biz. I want fabulousness about Filo Farnsworth with a big chorus line and lots of kicking doesn't see right for him though. He just wanted to quietly work in the lab. I want us. Why off people can all do the kicking? And the big boy Storace show numbers were as he could have quiet little songs in his lab. But yeah, that's far thread that's interesting because in some circles when you say vilo Farnsworth people go oh love history in other people. Just get a glazed look like he's he's kind of reached through history and hit certain people and a lot of people have become very interested in his story. But for many others, they have no idea. He even. Existed. Let alone led to the box that inhabits our lives all the time. Yeah. Although modern day TV tech is very different. But I'm hoping that all the warehouse. Thirteen fans who've been writing us and asking us to talk about parasol sus can take some temporary solace. This episode about Farnsworth. I love him. I I have a real soft spot for him partially because I love television, and entertainment and partially because. You know, he's just that guy who wants to work on projects and didn't really have business acumen was a great thinker that kinda was an underdog. Thank
