Canadian, George Retzlaff, invented Instant Replay  back in 1955 while working for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's (CBC) "Hockey Night In Canada" (HNIC).
He produced and directed "Hockey Night In Canada" (HNIC) for about 20 years and devised many of the techniques and camera angles still used in most televised sporting events around the world today. George used a new "hot processor" technique to develop a kinescope (film) recording of a goal which was then rebroadcast within thirty seconds for "instant" replay.
instant replayEvery sport played on this earth today uses George's Instant Replay in some form. George was born in Kiel, Germany and moved to Saskatchewan when he was six. In 1953, at the age of 30 — and just a few months after CBC started broadcasting — he became head of CBC Sports and producer of HNIC.
In 1973, George became the original recipient of hockey's Foster Hewitt Award for Excellence in Sports Broadcasting. He retired from the CBC in 1984. George died August 5, 2003, survived by seven children from his two marriages, 20 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
