Maybe we're talking about the same thing, but I thought it was meant to
solve the problem of colors shifting in receivers as a result of phase
distortion in transmission? The striking difference between PAL and
NTSC, to me, was always the much more natural colors, especially flesh
tones, in PAL. I remember that over here, you had to readjust the color
for every station, just about, in the late '60s. Whereas with PAL, there
was no adjustment at all. No knob.
