Default Re: Technology related anachronisms on TV and in films etc.

From about the mid 60's all BBC news gathering on film would have been colour. I worked for a firm that put a magnetic stripe on the film before it went into the camera so they could record the sound at the same time.
I guess they either added the colour picture to the TV by computer or somebody had fitted a colour chassis to a set they borrowed. I haven't seen the program yet.
The first Colour TV I owned was in 1968 - the year of the strike.
