U Tubes "jconsta5" This video was a lot fun to put together. After doing this photo-shoot of the Gazette Newspapers' annual
Holiday Parade in Schenectady, NY on November 17, 2007, I realized the theme this year was on Classic TV. And then it hit
me. I noticed according to my research that this January of 2008 would officially mark the 80th anniversary of the birth of
television, which coincidentally occurred here in Schenectady when a creative visionary from the General Electric Company,
named E.F.W. Alexanderson, helped perform the world's first transmission of television from his home in Schenectady to exactly
four receivers from miles away. Not only it gave birth to this new medium, but it would later evolve into the world's first
TV station that would become known as WRGB.
