PostSubject: A technical question about The Waltons   Wed Apr 01, 2015 12:12 pm

As well as watching LHOTP, I'm currently watching the Waltons, series 5. This was shot in 1975.

What is up with the colours? There is a predominance of red, brown and orange, (and not just because of all those red-headed kids!) greens show up quite well but the colours are definitely off. I know that LH doesn't have this issue, and it's not my Samsung TV.

Colour TV showed up later in the UK than the US, but we had a system that showed greater resolution, so British shows from the same period generally looked better, but I don't think that's the issue here.

It reminds me of earlyish model TVs which generally didn't have a good handle on colour - there could be a brownish, purplish or greenish tint, and those TVs frequently broke down.

Wasn't the Waltons a huge show by then and with a big budget? Anyone have any ideas?
