    Correct word order?

    Hi everybody,

    I know it would sound better if I said: A new age of our culture started with the invention of television.
    But is the word order in the following sentence gramatically correct, too?
    With the invention of television started a new age of our culture.

    Thanks for your help!

    It's almost OK. It would sound better as ..........

    With the invention of television, a new age of our culture started.
