For the technical interested:
Another short sequence showing my 32-line televisor in action. The singer is the danish actor Buster Larsen singing 'hip hurray for old Denmark' in about 1960. Buster died in 1993.

Again this was filmed off screen using a Sony Digital Video Camera with 'slow shutter', the picture frequency of the televisor being 12 1/2 Hz. The picture consists of 32 vertical lines each consisting of 64 points for picture + 6 points of black (32x70). The programme is DVD run through a Pal625/Baird32 signals converter I build in 1999. You can see it in the video. The televisor is scanning from top left to buttom right - this being the opposite of the original Baird Television System developed by John Logie Baird.
