The fellow who posted this says “i got it in a video trade about 5 years ago” about its origins.

This is a video tape of a BBC sign on apparently from 1951. RCA didn’t start experimenting with the idea of “magnetic telerecording” until 1952 as they were working on packing color into the NTSC signal before that.

EMI was supposedly working on an abandoned system from about 1950, but no one has found anything other than mentions in their archives. I’m googling for BBC documentaries and this comes in. I’m going to like this century.

Posh.
