I also worked on 'The Day the Earth Caught Fire'. I visited the old EMI Elstree archive, then at Pinewood to assess the assets. One of the items I discovered with Tim was the coloured gel that was used for some cinema presentations back in the day, to 'colourise' the opening title caption!
Great film, it always seemed to be on TV in 4:3 form of course in the late 60’s. Didn’t realise you were involved in the restoration Paul. Great stuff. We really enjoyed seeing it in all its restored glory & proper format on Talking Pictures over Xmas.
