CANADIAN MARCONI - HOME ENTERTAINMENT - TELEVISION 

A SHORT HISTORY OF CANADIAN TELEVISION
By Jerry Proc VE3FAB
This story, about the  Short History of Canadian Television , was published in Volume 35 of the Antique Wireless Association REVIEW publication. My thanks go to the editor Tim Martin and reviewers who helped to embellish the article from its original form.  It is hoped that this article gives the reader a glimpse into Canadian television history.

Here is jusr a sampling of televisions built by the Canadian Marconi company. Any photo contributions of Canadian Marconi TVs would be most appreciated. Contact: jerry.proc@sympatico.ca In this research it was discovered that dates given, might be marketing versus production dates. The dates shown in all the TV documents are  assumed to be production dates.  The Marconi brand name of Citation was used for both stereo radio consoles and television sets.
