"It will be admitted by all that so good a scientific invention (TV) for the purpose and pursuit of entertainment alone would be a prostitution of its powers and an insult to the character and intelligence of people." -President of the BBC, 1925
Sarnoff: I don't think I stole television - if I did, I did it fair and square. But he deserved better in my hands. He was gonna do a lot more, but I burned his house down so he wouldn't burn mine down first.
