 In Living Colour
Although the first public television broadcasts in colour were made in the United States, the first proposal was made as far back as 1904, although the first patent filed was in 1925, when the electronic television pioneer Zworykin came up with a scheme.
The broadcasters realised that they would become extremely unpopular with their audiences if they introduced colour TV transmissions that could not also be seen in fl and white.
In fact, after a series of house fires were allegedly started by colour TV sets, the BBC began warning British viewers they should stay in the same room as the TV for an hour after they had switched it off the make sure that it didn't burst into flames.

In Living Color was the brainchild of Keenen Ivory Wayans, the eldest sibling of a large and extremely talented family whose guidance toward his brothers and sisters would help shape his creation into something truly memorable, the likes of which had never been seen prior on US television.
