The only known television interview with the wife of TV pioneer John Logie Baird is being made available to the public at a museum in East Sussex.

The recording of Margaret Logie Baird has been presented to Hastings Museum, which has an exhibition dedicated to his work, by the man who spoke to her.

She was interviewed by Scottish author and playwright Pat Trevor.

Logie Baird moved to Sussex in 1923, and transmitted the first flickering TV images from a house in Hastings.

He died in 1946, aged 57, in Bexhill, where he lived for the last five years of his life.
