Philips – Colour Television

Loading the player...

Colour television was officially introduced to New Zealand on 31 October 1973. This advertisement for Philips colour TVs is made of up shots of "natural colour situations" – horseracing and a butterfly on a flower. "When you move into colour viewing, make sure the colour you are seeing is real, natural colour."

Television sets are presented on the beach and underwater as fishes swim by: "colour so natural it's almost like being there."

Directed by Roger Donaldson, who had recently directed Sleeping Dogs.
