This is a promotional film made for the International Telegraph Congress in Buenos Aires in 1939. It shows German TV cameras in operation, and what appear to be real screen shots of monitors and an E1 receiver in operation. The movie shows how television and video phone are used to catch a hit and run driver. The film was found by Claus Gallenmiller in Germany. Thanks to Darryl Hock for sending it to us.
