A CENTURY OF SUCCESS

Though the radio was invented at the end of the 19th century, it achieved its significant importance in the mid 20th century. At the turn of the century, however, it is already replaced by the television. In this project we will discuss both medias, because we think they have a lot in common and they are put together in a category - the elctronic media. We will include the history of radio and television - first broadcasts, producers, programs, interesting facts, etc. because the answer to the question why did they have such a huge impact lies in it. The project also includes commentaries of some radio and television workers.

"It is difficult to estimate the enormous influences broadcasting is going to exert on humanity in a hundred different directions. For the first time in the history of the world man is now able to appeal by means of direct speech to millions of his fellows, and there is nothing to prevent an appeal being made to fifty millions of men and women at the same time." - Guglielmo Marconi
