Image Dissectors is a digital periodical, dedicated to perusing, reviewing and analysing the television, the internet, the radio and all other forms that contain words, pictures, sounds, either, neither or both.
The site is named after Philo Farnsworth's all-electronic television camera tube. Farnworth's invention was considered a masterpiece until the iconoscope was invented, instantly reducing Farnworth's image dissector to oblivion. The image dissector was inefficient and required very bright lighting to be used but it marked a huge leap forwards. Without it we would not have the television today and thousands of people would not be settiling down on a Saturday evening to watch The National Lottery Jetset. Just imagine a world like that. So join us in saluting Mr Farnworth and in taking a detailed, unbiased and irreverent look at all things media-related.
As technology has increased, so to has the list of contact details on websites. Image Dissectors is no exception to this rule.
