Early UK Colour Televisions


On 1st July, 1967, BBC2 launched Europe’s first colour service with the Wimbledon tennis championships. This was broadcast using the Phase Alternating Line (PAL) system, which was based on the work of the German television engineer Walter Bruch. PAL was based on NTSC but much improved, NTSC was  dubbed “never twice the same colour".
