Not this one.  Watched last weeks about the Lauste sound film and the 
piece of underseas cable.  In both cases the answer was that these were 
not the FIRST examples of either, but the form of the program is to 
waste time by going to the stupid people first before "finding" the 
person with the answers.  They probably knew to go to them first, but 
that would turn it into the documentary it should have been, rather than 
a detective mystery farce.

Like, hey I found this old HMV Gramophone that is not in any of the 
catalogs or websites listing all HMV models!  Did I find the FIRST HMV
