4 September marks the anniversary of two celebrations for television. In 1940 a demonstration of colour TV was given on station W2XAB by the Columbia Broadcasting System in the USA. And in 1951, the first live transcontinental television broadcast took place in San Francisco, California, from the Japanese Peace Treaty Conference.
