The rules of using colour and light in colour television, bearing in mind how it will look on a black and white set 1960's
Man on a set soaked through, similar to 'Singing in the Rain'. The man went out without a coat, he did not follow the procedure for walking in the rain, so he got wet. Follow procedures in television to avoid mistakes. Women with see-through transparent umbrella. Presenter shows the colour chart and the contrasts between light and dark colours. In TV no pure white or pure black can be used. The difference between colours on tv can be no more than 20 times, the lightest colour no more than 20 times the brightness of the darkest colour. Saturation of colour. Different colours have the same contrast in black and white, therefore would appear to be the same colour on a black and white television set. Colours reflect and the lighting has to be adjusted so that this is countered. Shadows loose details so they must be softly lit. Skin tones of the actors change against different background colours. Some good optical illusions about how the eye is tricked into thinking it is seeing different colours, when in fact the colours are the same.
