Milestones in Movies With Sound and Television [Videos]

Silent films started appearing commercially on a widespread basis in the late 1920's and early 1930's. The first experimental effort to produce a film clip with synchronises sound dates back to 1894. Very recently, the wx cylinder that was a part of this first "talkie" was found and restored. Following is the result of this experiment. Following is the first American experimental television broadcast that aired in a viewing studio on July 7, 1936. In tghe second clip, it is worth noting the manner in which African Americans were portrayed. Nazi Germany did a lot more work in the field of television, and saw ist propaganda potential. Following is an early German broadcast from 1935. Early German television broadcast from 1935 (in which an announcer makes a sick pun about concentration camps at the end of the clip)
