«Two-Way-Demo: Send/Receive»

On September 10 and 11, 1977, the first two-way live broadcast between New York and San Francisco take place. Put into position in 1976, the NASA Satellite CTS is used for the occasion. The New York-based station, MCTV, receives a cable signal by satellite. Throughout the two-and-a-half hour-long broadcast, the two-way telecommunication is the central theme: texts are read, video material recorded and discussed. The broadcast reaches almost 25,000 spectators.
