A few days ago we had an opportunity of being present at a demonstration given at the offices of Television Ltd, in Upper St. Martins Lane, when the face of a person in the upper part of the building was made to appear on the screen of the receiving apparatus in the basement.

Instructions to move the head, open the mouth etc. were sent from the receiver to the transmitter by telephone, and every movement was duly reproduced on the screen.

True, the results left a good deal to be desired, for they did not in any way compare with those of the modern cinematograph, but they served to demonstrate that television has been made possible, and that in all probability infinitely better results will be secured in the near future.
