The earliest surviving colour video - Eisenhower, 1958…

“This is the earliest surviving colour videotape recording - Dwight Eisenhower’s inaugural address to WRC-TV on 22nd May 1958.

USA started broadcasting colour in late 1953 and colour TV sets were available to the public in 1954 at an expensive price. Colour videotaping began in USA in 1958″

The colour footage begins at 1:20, and its quality is extraordinary.
