My son’s school assembly for parents last week required him to dress up as businessman Theo Paphitis, one of the stars of the hit TV show for entrepreneurs and inventors, Dragon’s Den.
His lines required him to dismiss Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone invention: “I like writing letters to my friends. I’m out” and Thomas Edison’s lightbulb: “Electricity in glass? Sounds dangerous to me. I’m out”.
So which one did he put his money behind?
John Logi Baird’s television of course!
“What a brilliant idea. I predict there will be one in every home. Here, have some money”.
