Manchester Guardian editor C.P. Scott once remarked that no good would ever come out of television. Why not? Because, Scott explained, the word 'television' is half Latin and half Greek!

[The word derives from the Greek root "tele?" (meaning for) and the "vision," the past participle of the Latin vidre (to see).]
