Especially interesting when you look at what color is described for TX40:Quote from: Tony Farrell on Aug 15, 2013, 08:38 pmTX40 = pale (Silvan) green - source BBC Tardis Interior set plans (courtesy of Rob49152).and you consider that in all of the color publicity photos of the Hartnell TARDIS the window frames and PTO panel background are clearly white. One would think since they were filming in B&W that they'd use TX40 on all the TARDIS Police Box props. Of course it is also possible that in B&W the colors would be so similar that one couldn't tell the difference in color, given the resolution of the cameras, film, and TV sets back then. And yet, the color photo of the props in Tony's post above (blue window frames aside) does show the PTO panel background as white. (Same goes for the white circle of the St. John logo.)I also suppose, since they were taking color publicity photos of the TARDIS, that most people of the period would've thought it quite odd if a "Police Box" had a pale green phone panel and like window frames. (Hmm... I think I might've just solved my own vexation on this. See? Talking to oneself does have its advantages! )Dino.
