Total Automatic Color - 1969

Might be a little OT:

Magnavox marketed their Total Automatic Color
("automatic" Tint/Hue and Color control system)
starting in 1969.

Other TV makers followed with similar systems.

I think it'd be interesting to create images representing
how these auto tint/color systems actually distorted
the pictures, all the while making the pictures more
appealing to the average viewer.

IIRC, the Magnavox system had 2 settings (I guess if
the local station had sloppy engineering, the more
extreme setting could be used).
