Hit or Miss: Elpico Colour TV Filter

OK, you've got over the initial wow-factor of TV, now you're hungry for the next development.  This advert from December 1951 could be for you.  Can't wait for colour TV - then get the next best thing; the colour filter.  This must have been an adhesive-backed acetate with graduated colour tinting, but I've never seen one.  The top was tinted blue (for the sky); middle was pink (for sunset?); and the bottom green (for grass).  Hit or Miss, you tell me?
