First colour  TV transmission
John Logie Baird
1928/7/03 first
UK (Long Acre,London)
The world's earliest transmission of colour television occurred on 3 July 1928 when John Logie Baird (UK) showed red and blue scarves, a UK policeman's helmet, a man poking his tongue out, the glowing end of a cigarette and a bunch of roses during a demonstration at his studios in Long Acre, London, UK.

Nature magazine reported: `Delphiniums and carnations appeared in their natural colours and a basket of strawberries showed the red fruit very clearly.' The low definition system was based on a Nipkow scanning-disc with red, blue and green filters.
