Chicho Ibañez Serrador wanted to shoot this series in color using film, but TVE forced him to shoot it in black & white, since Spanish TV at that time could only be broadcast in that format The color PAL system arrived Spain two years later in 1969, and it wasn't used regularly until 1973, and there was no budget to shoot it in color anyway.

One of the best TVmakers in Spain made this 1 hour video showing how censors have been working along the centuries. It's specially funny because it makes nostalgic and tragic humor, like many of the best comedies ever. As an example there is talked about the only male actors in the 16th century or the dubbing into Spanish from movies where a husband had a lover. It shows how it is supposed to be necessary to hide parts of Art and Communication, but any a-bit-intelligent watcher can see that he (Chicho Ibáñez-serrador) is at any time against censorship. I don't understand how this could be broadcasted, then Franco was still alive!
