first ever live broadcast

First Television Broadcast NBC/RCA July 7, 1936

This is a filmed record (not a kinescope) of the first actual “public” television broadcast in the United States. (There were perhaps three receivers capable of receiving the signal.) This show starts with the “live” portion (which has been filmed, rather awkwardly….it’s sometimes hard to see the actual image being broadcast). Then there are some Pathé newsreels which were broadcast, followed by more live footage
