In January 1926 Baird publicly demonstrated real television. Other pioneering achievements followed including the first transatlantic transmission, the first demonstrations of colour tele-vision and stereoscopic television and the first video recordings. In the 1930's he twice televised the Derby, and demonstrated cinema television, in black-and-white and colour. During World War II he developed high-definition and stereoscopic television in colour, and invented the first all-electronic colour television tube. He also made significant advances in radio imaging, secret signalling, fibre optics, infra-red scanning, and fast facsimilie transmission.
