Penicillin to MRI: UK universities' greatest inventions

From penicillin to MRI scans, British universities have provided the world with some of the most innovative and influential inventions in history.
Scientists Freddie Williams and Tom Kilburn unveiled the first working computer at the University of Manchester in 1948 and researchers at the University of Dundee laid the foundations for the LCD screen in the 1970s and 1980s.
The former invention would go on to attract the code-breaker Alan Turing, who would later develop a computer that went on to become the first to be commercially manufactured.
