^Well, just because that kinescope footage is in B&W doesn't mean the original broadcast wasn't in color. I mean, if you were watching a color broadcast on a black & white set, you'd see it in black & white. And there is precedent for kinescopes of color shows being made on B&W film -- for instance, some of the color Doctor Who episodes were made available overseas in B&W form, so that some of the recovered "lost episodes" from the Third Doctor era were only available in B&W even though the originals were in color.
