Does any of the old timers know if anyone snapped a photo of the purple banana, during Rca demonstration?

Probably what it looked like.

Sometimes chroma carrier phase reversals happened at TV station. Making the weatherman look like a Smirf.

One of our stations shifted the Chroma Keying on the Weather Guy on Halloween, giving the guy a reddish face - and tons of complaints. He'd lost a bet and had to do the earliest report (we have local news from 5-6:30) in a devil suit. They shifted things, gave him a red face, but suddenly his body became transparent-like...scary to kids, no doubt.

Another weatherman here has a silver watchband that reflects the green screen, detaching his hand from his arm. Really disarming if you don't understand the green screen workings..
