New trend in TV on DVD

I just saw where Columbia Tristar is releasing two different versions of Bewitched Season 1. For the purists, Elizabeth Montgomery and Darren v1.0 is available in glorious black and white. For those who go to see the movie this summer and want their Bewitched in color, there’s a second version that’s been colorized.

The interesting thing that I read, is that many early television shows were made in black and white even after they could be made in color. The reason… The majority of people didn’t have color sets and it was cheaper to do the shows in black and white.
