1928: Station W2XBS, RCA's first television station, is established in New York City, creating television's first star, Felix the Cat, the original model of which is featured in Watching TV. Later in the year, the world's first television drama, The Queen's Messenger, is broadcast, using mechanical scanning. Also this year, John Logie Baird transmits images of London to New York via shortwave.
