As far as I know, having been a student of ATV and UK ITV all my life and a professional cameraman of 35 years,
and having worked at what is now BBC TV Elstree - ALL absolutely ALL "This is TOM JONES" were recorded at ATV Elstree
studio D - the audience studio in both 625 line PAL and for the USA 525 line NTSC . If you look all the directors are
ATV staffers of the time - Jon Schofield ,etc. Having actually worked in that studio the shows were recorded once in
625 and then again in 525 - colour conversion to enable a single 525 line recording did not exist - for the record
the cameras were the excellent Philips PC 60;s' [Ivor Allison]
