I'd like a list of first broadcasts for TV by nation.  Does one exist or
shall we compile one?

In Australia the first non-test broadcast is cited as the Commonwealth
Games of 1956.  In Israel I am told it was a parade or some sort of
ceremony of honour after the 1967 war.

What was it in France, Japan, USSR, Peru...?

I'd like more of these firsts.  Thanks in advance.
