April 29th in history: the bankruptcy of Commodore, the first experimental TV program in the Soviet Union, the announcement of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690

29 APR 1931 was held the first experimental television broadcast in the USSR. The special piquancy to this event was given to the fact that the transfer was carried out on the radio. Then, this type of communication was called foresight, and the transfer was carried out on the wave of 56.6 meters. Watch the show could hams within Moscow. And six months later began airing regular TV shows on long radio waves, which you could see in other cities. Now it can hardly be called a TV because it was just given a static image, without sound.
