The April 12, 1935 issue of Wireless World, published in London (Great Britain), offered a subscription to a 16 part magazine, called Television Today.  Shown above is the original advertisement for this magazine, which stated "the practice and principles [of television would be] clearly explained".

This is a scan of the front cover of Part 1.  Each booklet measures 7" x 10" and shares the same cover graphics, except for the index box on the right-hand side.  The complete set of 16 issues discusses in detail the design and workings of television (from around the world) for the year 1935.  In total, a comprehensive 780-page publication, profusely illustrated.  Key highlights of each issue will be shown in this section over the coming weeks.

Historians consider 1935 to be a pivotal year in the development of television because engineers, designers and research-manufacturing efforts are clearly switching from the outdated mechanical systems to the fully all-electronic (cathode-ray) television we know today.  Only a few people (in 1935) held out some hope for mechanical television and in respect for those individuals, advanced mechanical systems are covered in this publication.
