I figured that since the topic is related to TV, this would be the best spot at the moment to place this thread.

Why in Germany that made the use of TV to be considered to be practical in the first place?

Was it scientific, econnomics, political, world morals, sporting or considered to contain the best impliced message sent the world needed to see proof of.

First wide scale use of high power television was the 1936 Olympics. There were smaller, lower power tests before that in the UK, were done by Baird, but the all electronic television concept was developed by a Russian.

I think fully electronic televison was proposed (with diagrams) by a Scot.. Campbell Swinton as early as 1905. German.... Nipkow patented mechanical TV in 1884.

Maybe what they actually mean by the first practical use was that it was used as a small stepladder in a library.
