In addition to the entertainment and cultural aspects of television, The Magic Window also explores the business, politics, and technology of early television. from the author's introduction: "Television may have produced a number of overnight sensations, but it wasn't one itself. A span of more than a decade separated its debut in American society in 1939 from its popular acceptance in the early 1950s. This book tells the story of that period when television struggled to find its place in American popular culture. It concludes at a point where some may think TV began, with the success of I Love Lucy, and it begins with an event that seems too distant for TV to have played any part-the opening of the 1939 World's Fair." The Magic Window will educate, inform, and entertain you with the fascinating early history of American television. In these pages, you'll learn about: inventor Charles Jenkins, whose electronic transmission of a movie to a gathering of government officials made history in 1925, but whose career was thwarted by the Great Depression and the United States government RCA executive David Sarnoff, who struggled to bring television to the masses FCC Chairman Larry Fly who fought to keep RCA from developing into a television monopoly how World War II, the New Deal, and the Cold War impacted early television, and how television impacted America's perceptions of them the first televised political convention (Republican party, 1940) and how television changed American politics forever the 1940-1941 Congressional debate Textbooks New, Books~~Language Arts~~General, The-Magic-Window~~Jim-Von-Schilling, 999999999, The Magic Window: American Television, 1939-1953, Jim Von Schilling, 0789015056, Taylor & Francis, , , , , Taylor & Francis
