A televisão no Brasil foi inaugurada em 18 de setembro de 1950, trazida por Assis Chateaubriand que fundou o primeiro canal de televisão no país, a TV Tupi em São Paulo e em 20 de janeiro de 1951, entra no ar a TV Tupi no Rio. Desde então a televisão cresceu no país e hoje representa um fator importante na cultura popular moderna da sociedade Brasil. Em 1955 é inaugurada a TV Rio, aliando-se à TV Record, inaugurada em 1953, às Emissoras Unidas. Em agosto de 1957 inicia-se as transmissões entre cidades no Brasil, com um link montado entre a TV Rio e a TV Record, ligando as cidades do Rio de Janeiro e São Paulo, com a transmissão do Grande Prêmio Brasil de Turfe, direto do Hipódromo da Gávea no Rio. Em 1959 surge a TV Continental canal 9 no Rio, trazendo a novidade do video-tape para o Brasil, ela seria cassada em 1972. Em 1960 é inaugurada a primeira TV Excelsior em São Paulo, a segunda viria em 1963 no Rio. As duas sairam do ar por decisão do governo em 1970. Em 1960 foram inauguradas as duas primeiras emissoras de televisão do Recife: TV Jornal do Commercio e TV Rádio Clube de Pernambuco. Em 26 de abril de 1965, entra no ar a TV Globo canal 4 do Rio, embrião da Rede Globo de Televisão. Em março de 1966 a TV Globo do Rio compra a TV Paulista transformando-a em TV Globo de São Paulo, primeiro passo para a criação da Rede Globo. Em 13 de maio de 1967, começa a funcionar a TV Bandeirantes canal 13 de São Paulo, primeira emissora da Rede Bandeirantes. Em 1968 foi inaugurada a primeira emissora de TV educativa do Brasil: TV Universitária, da Universidade Federal de Pernambuco. Em 28 de fevereiro de 1969, inaugura-se no Brasil as primeiras torres de rastreamento de satélites pela Embratel, então uma empresa estatal, localizadas no município de Tanguá no Estado do Rio de Janeiro, ligando em linha direta o Brasil entre si e com o restante do mundo. Em 31 de março de 1972, foi inaugurada oficialmente a TV em Cores no Brasil. Em abril de 1977 é cassada a TV Rio. Em 16 de julho de 1980, foi fechada pelo governo federal a Rede Tupi de Televisão, emissoras pioneiras da TV no Brasil, no ar desde a década de 1950. No dia 19 de agosto de 1981, Silvio Santos unifica suas emissoras fundando o SBT. Em 5 de junho de 1983, é fundada no Rio de Janeiro, a Rede Manchete composta de canais no Rio, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Recife, Fortaleza e com representação em Brasília. Em março de 1985, o Brasil começa a operar com o seu primeiro satélite, o Brasil-Sat. Em 1987 volta a funcionar a TV Rio que mais tarde seria vendida a Igreja Universal. Em 9 de novembro de 1989, a TV Record de São Paulo é vendida para o Bispo Edir Macedo, iniciando então a Rede Record de Televisão. A primeira TV por assinatura no Brasil surgiu em 1990 nas cidades de São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro, no sistema "MMDS", a empresa pioneira foi comprada no ano seguinte pela Editora Abril, que transformou-a em TVA. Em 16 de maio de 1999 a Rede Manchete foi vendida a um grupo de empresários paulistas que fundaram a Rede TV! A TV Digital no Brasil teve início as 20h30min do dia 2 de dezembro de 2007, inicialmente na cidade de São Paulo, pelo padrão SBTVD (Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão Digital), o mais completo e avançado do mundo.

Item Description: Written in ink, in a large, legible hand of the eighteenth century. (3 blank), 84, (1 blank) ll. Folio (29 x 20 cm.), nineteenth-century tan quarter calf over laid paper boards, tinted a faint green, spine with raised bands in five compartments (worn, minor worming at foot), gilt bands, red leather lettering-piece in second compartment from head, text-block edges sprinkled blue-green. Internally fine, overall very good. ---- Copies of 30 letters, apparently unpublished, by D. Francisco de Sousa Coutinho, one of D. João IV's principal ambassadors. Sousa Coutinho, a trusted friend of D. João since 1623, was sent abroad immediately after the Restauração to seek recognition of Portugal's independence. In 1641 he negotiated a treaty of friendship and commerce with Sweden. Two years later he was sent to negotiate with the Dutch, who were attacking Brazil, Angola, and Ceylon. The treaty signed in 1645 was considered by many in Lisbon and Pernambuco to be a betrayal of Portuguese interests, but he remained in The Hague as D. João's representative until 1650. Edgar Prestage was of the opinion that Sousa Coutinho's diplomacy ultimately helped keep Brazil in Portuguese hands, because it prevented the Dutch from sending urgently needed supplies to their troops there.In early 1651 Sousa Coutinho was dispatched to France, to discuss a possible alliance with France and Sweden against Spain. In 1655, D. João sent him to Rome in yet another attempt to persuade Pope Alexander VII to recognize Portugal's independence. Sousa Coutinho remained in Rome until 1658, even after D. João's death had brought D. Afonso VI to the throne (with his mother as regent).Sousa Coutinho was born in 1597 on Ilha de S. Miguel in the Azores, and died in 1660. His published works include @Manifesto, e protestaçam que fez Francisco de Sousa Coutinho, Commendador da Ordem de Christo, & Alcaide Môr da Villa de Sousel, do Conselho delRey Dom Joam o IV, nosso Senhor, & seu Embaxador extraordinario âs partes Septentrionaes, enviado â Dieta de Ratisbona, sobre a liberdade do Serenissimo Senhor Infante D. Duarte, 1641, and @Propositio Facta Celsis Praepotentibus Dominis Ordinibus Generalibus Confoederatarum Provinciarum Belgii ., 1647 (published in French and Dutch the same year), a proposal to the States General about Pernambuco. The @Grande Enciclopédia notes that Sousa Coutinho left in manuscript an account of his embassies ("Memórias Históricas"), which was praised by D. Francisco Manuel de Melo.This collection seems to deal primarily with Sousa Coutinho's diplomatic efforts in Rome. None of the letters includes a date. The recipients are as follow. The number of letters is noted only when there is more than one letter to the same recipient. In this manuscript, all letters to a recipient are grouped together.1. P. Frei André Teles (?)2. Conde de Odemira (8 letters) - probably Francisco de Faro, 7º Conde de Odemira, ca. 1575-16613. Dezembargador Feliciano Dourado - Sousa Coutinho's ambassadorial secretary while in France4.
