And while it was a well-done TV documentary, it badly underplayed anyone 
was not corporate (Westinghouse, GE, RCA), never mentioned any women or 
minorities, and focused on Sarnoff, Armstrong and DeForest as if they 
were the entire story of radio.  Agreed, they were three major figures 
(although DeForest's role could be debated-- he was quite a 
self-promoter), but the early years of broadcasting had some amazing 
entrepreneurs, including the late great John Shepard 3rd, who was 
mentioned but just barely.
