A NEW EXHIBIT HAS OPENED AT THE MZTV TELEVISION MUSEUM IN TORONTO’S LIBERTY VILLAGE

‘PHILO T. FARNSWORTH – FORGOTTEN GENIUS’ at the MZTV Museum and Archive highlights the most famous person nobody’s ever heard of. Almost 100 years ago, 14-year-old PHILO came up with an invention that would transform our lives – TELEVISION!

Farnsworth conceived the idea for electronic television and his story is being told at the Museum.  Exhibit curator Phil Savenick says Farnsworth made the groundbreaking discovery while plowing potato fields back in 1922, before he attended high school.
