Cheers Rebbonk :cheers:

According to that site, not only the first Gerry Anderson series but also the first UK series of any kind to be shot in colour! :shock:

ITV didn't go colour itself until 1970 although there had been test broadcasts long before that. In any case it was the mid-1970s before colour TV sets were installed in any great numbers in the UK.

We rented a (first) colour TV for the '72 Olympics where Mark Spitz cleaned up with the medals.

Unfortunately though, there was a fault on the set and the blue pool water regularly turned a vivid violet. I also seem to remember getting fierce headaches for quite a while after we "went colour."
