Thanks Masterspy.
Marty if you had looked at the start of the thread i did say that BBC 2 were first in July 1967. And we were talking about regular transmissions NOT test trasmissions.

As for Andy Pandy - the colour ones were made in the late 60s or 70s. Not in the 50s.
I read it in one of my old books somwhere Masterspy. I'll search through my collection and let you know when I find it.

The 26 Andy Pandy episodes made between 1950-52 were constantly shown until 1969. That is when 13 new colour ones were made, which started airing on January 5th 1970.

well legend films and west wing studios have to makes best guesses of things.if you look at planet of the daleks ep 3 that was colourized by legend films along croma dots found in the telerecording.

The reality is that BBC 1 had broadcast colour before the autumn of '69. The BBC announced that from Oct. '69 BBC1 it was to launching a FULL colour service (which it was not, it was well in to the 1970s before they could claim that one) but the wording is correct in that colour had be transmitted prior to that date mainly sports events such as tennis and football and sundry other programmes excluding test transmissions in shut down periods.

As far as BBC 2 is concerned the colour service was not formally launched until December 1967, but colour broadcasts were airing (albeit intermittently) from the turn of the year and ramped up in the summer. It was no different for BBC 1 although phase shifted two years after.

Marty...

Let's hope Gerry & Network are looking at this fireballman and see what a first class job you've done.

Those shows do look good in colour. What about Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea and the Lost In Space B/W episodes in colour!

These images are amazing.

I think it would be very cool if you were hired to make a photobook version of the Supercar and Fireball XL5 episodes in colour. I have no idea how expensive this process is, but the results are stunning.

More please...

The LIS images look a little odd, I can see the red and blue but green seems absent maybe a stronger yellow tint will restore it? They are still amazing though, those Supercar shots are fantastic.

I had a fiddle in iPhoto, this is a difficult process and I have more respect for what you do than I did before

I'm not sure you'll see a big difference but on my monitor Bill looks more naturally sun tanned than fake tanned. I then tried to start a colourisation from scratch with a B&W image. I didn't produce a result I would share in public..... Like I said, respect.
