In the United Kingdom, both Electric and Musical Industries (EMI) and Baird Television were firmly committed to the development of medium/high-definition television during the same period that the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) was undertaking its development programme. Unlike the American company, which pursued a policy of publishing its findings in the journal of a learned society, the British companies maintained a policy of secretiveness, and no published papers exist for the period 1932-1935 to show how their systems progressed. Fortunately for the historian, representatives from the BBC and the General Post Office (GPO) witnessed demonstrations of the two systems from time to time and their accounts are available for study.
