You Go, Miss Pounsford!

Looking for some interesting alternative TV viewing in this age of vacant Hollywood twaddle and reality shows that reveal just how low society can go? Then go back in time to TV's roots in 1928! In the lab of Scottish television pioneer John Logie Baird, vivacious Miss Pounsford turns her elegant head this way and that (rather endlessly, thanks to modern-day technology) as one of the first persons to have her image televised. We're only sorry, we could not see her having a smoke! In any case, Miss Pounsford's efforts in the cause of science are quite an improvement over Stookie Bill.

In this very early footage, I see foreshadowings of certain episodes of Laverne & Shirley.
