NOW we are getting somewhere! And there was so much snow on the picture that you had to put blue or red cellophane paper in front of the picture tube to try to filter out enough of the snow to be able to see an actual picture. YEARS later, probably some time in the late 70s – when we finally got a COLOR TV, I was astonished to learn that the last few years of The Lone Ranger, almost all of The Cisco Kid and totally ALL of BONANZA had been in color since back in the 50s.
What is amazing is that so many of those old TV shows which were originally made for an audience which was watching on a 6 inch black and white TV screen look so very good when re-runs air on today’s big screen TVs.
