A glass plate negatve of a BBC television cameraman at Epsom racecourse, Surrey, taken by Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 1st June, 1938.

The cameraman practises directing his Emitron camera at the finishing post to find the best shot before the Derby Day racing starts. In the late 1770s, Lord Derby and Sir Charles Bunbury decided to create a race that would find the best horse of its generation - and tossed a coin to see who the race would be named after. Although Bunbury lost the toss, his horse Diomed won the first ever Epsom Derby in 1780.
