1970: How the FIRST EVER TV play was made in 1930 | Review | Making Of.

Old UK

Review marks the 40th anniversary of the first ever television play, an adaptation of Luigi Pirandello’s The Man With the Flower in His Mouth, which was broadcast using John Logie Baird’s television system. The surviving members of the original cast and production staff have been reunited, and – using copies of the original equipment – recreate the play, using the same techniques as they used on the 14th of July 1930.
