The Story of John Logie Baird.
It's 1939, the Second World War is about to break out, and the Baird Television Company is threatened with closure. But John Logie Baird can still afford to keep a few workers on, amongst them fourteen-year-old apprentice Alex. One day, the boy finds Baird bent over in pain, ill from overwork. Alex persuades the inventor to take a holiday in Cornwall, where his family have been evacuated. On the long train journey, Baird tells the boy the extraordinary story of his life, and how he first sent pictures through the air . . .
