The very first color television demonstration was in 1928. John Logie Baird, who had first shown off his monochrome television system in 1925 produced a full color version of it. It was an electro-mechanical system and was cumbersome. However, it demonstrated the principles of color capture and disp…lay that are still in use today. The 1940s saw electronic color television demonstrations but the first commercial color broadcast began in the US in 1950. The system used was not compatible with existing monochrome television and was considered to be a commercial failure. It was withdrawn in 1951. In 1953, the FCC approved the NTSC color standard and this was launched commercially in 1954. The system was completely compatible with existing television and so this marked the beginning of the move to color throughout the US. Europe followed suit with UK and Germany both launching color services in 1967. Over the following decade, most other countries began color broadcasting with just a few countries waiting until the early 80s to begin their own conversion to color. ( Full Answer )

Just pulled this off t'internet . Episode 1 Wednesday 4th November 2009 The team is in a state of panic following Harry's kidnapping by FSB agent Viktor Sarkisian. It seems their worst fears are confirmed when the Sacred Army of Righteous Vengeance (SARV) posts footage of Harry's execution on …the internet. However, Ros refuses to believe Harry is dead and leads Lucas North and the rest of the team on a mission to find him. When Sarkisian's body is found, it seems they've lost their strongest lead. Ros sends Lucas to try to extract information from new CIA liaison officer Sarah Caulfield but, despite a clear attraction between the pair, it appears she can't assist him. However, help arrives from an unexpected source when former team member Ruth Evershed returns to the grid, fearing for her life. Ruth reveals that Harry once thwarted a clandestine operation to smuggle weapons-grade uranium into Iraq, and only he and Ruth are privy to its true whereabouts. Now a group of rogue intelligence officers want it back and they don't care who they have to kill to get it. When Ruth and her family are kidnapped, the race is on for Section D to not only find them before they are killed, but also to discover whether Harry is still alive. Episode 2 Wednesday 11th November 2009 The team is forced into action as the country reaches crisis point when energy supplies are threatened by an explosion at a gas processing plant. The Home Secretary maintains public confidence by insisting that alternative suppliers are available but, behind closed doors, the Government is forced to engage in secret talks with Tazbekstan, a nation with a dubious human-rights record. Tazbek Trade And Industry Secretary Rustam Urazov promises to supply Britain with energy but, in return, he expects that Section D will turn a blind eye as he wipes out two enemies - exiled poet Bibi Saparova and campaigning journalist Matthew Plowden. With the stakes high, Harry insists that nothing must get in the way of the talks to supply gas, but Jo and Lucas argue that they must protect Bibi and Plowden. When Urazov stalls the negotiations, Harry takes drastic action to save the country, telling the team that they must take out Urazov. Section D masterminds an ingenious plan using Bibi to kill Urazov in order to shift responsibility. Will the scheme work or will it backfire to the detriment of the country?
