Philips 1963 experimental colour television camera test at the BBC

Philips 1963 experimental colour television camera test at the BBC
In the early 1960s the BBC, like most broadcasters, were considering what colour system and cameras to use for the future.
This picture shows the Philips camera with a Marconi BD848 3 I.O. tube camera behind, undergoing comparative tests in Lime Grove studio H (probably spring 1964?).

There is a BBC research department report No. T-132 dealing with the comparisons between different colour cameras
