To be reminded that in Tomsk television has started namely in TPU 62 years ago. On December 25, 1952 the first TV programme was received in Tomsk Polytechnic Institute (now - TPU) on a handmade TV set with the oscilloscope tube of 13 cm diameter. Television broadcasting in the institute has been launched in an astronomy tower on the fourth floor in the physical building.
Rector of TPI Alexander Vorobyov was one of the initiators of the television centre in Tomsk. In 1952 he set up a laboratory at the Institute, and then regular movie broadcasting with sound started from the educational television centre of Tomsk Polytechnic Institute. The educational television centre transmitted in the best standard 625 lines at that moment.
After the first successful television programmes Vorobyov petitioned the region administration to construct in Tomsk a stationary television centre. The region administration supported this petition and involved building organizations to the TV centre construction. Tomsk TV centre was the first one in Siberia and the fifth in Russia.
Interestingly enough, TV broadcasting equipment developed by radio amateurs of Tomsk Polytechnic Institute was so perfect that a lot of Siberian cities made orders for its manufacturing.
