Snippets are back again

As you sit and watch colour television in Great Britain today please remember that it was not until 2pm on Saturday 1st July 1967 that the householders of this country at large were able to watch colour television in their own home – that is/was of course provided they had the right television!

It had taken a long time to get this far – the first demonstration of colour television in the UK had been demonstrated on 3rd July 1928 – just 3 years after black & white pictures had been seen on TV!
