John Logie Baird was an early pioneer in the development of television, who did extensive development of electromechanical systems using Nipkow scanning disks. In the 1930s the BBC made regular transmissions of television programs using an electromechanical Baird system. Because of his technical successes and numerous public demonstrations of television transmission, some credit him as the "inventor" of television.[1]

He was a native of Helensburgh.
