    People should keep the colourised photos a secret so that kids know everything was black and white back then. They when they grow up they can be shown the colourised photos and it will make the past seem more real

    I just realized almost every Vox video is exactly the same. They bring a topic, an expert on that topic, leave a question for discussion at the end.

    Whenever I see a black and white photo, it's never interesting. Adding color looks kinda show how we would see if it was presented during this era. Love it

    1) This video/topic was amazing and magical. The work of colourists is really powerful and touching.
    2) Can we talk about how awesome the photographs were anyway? The compositions, the subjects, the atmospheres. Some fantastic scenes!

    Couldn't you train a neural network to color the images?

    There's more obsession in the need to sensationalise a title than what these people are doing with old photos.

    The jump cuts and abrupt cuts in music are incredibly distracting. You use this technique to show that something is off. It's usually used to punctuate a joke or imply something is contradictory. You don't do it randomly throughout a piece for no freaking reason. Nothing about this video is funny or isn't what it appears to be, so this technique shouldn't have been used. It ruins the narrative. I'm less than halfway through this video and instead of finishing it, I'm down in the comments section because the stupid editing style employed in this video is so distracting that it I can't concentrate on the story.

    I think both versions should be on display. A remembrance of history in its black and white form and the relation of human stories to our own lives with its color form.

    I genuinely appreciate the work these artists do to colorize old photos. When done well, it's utterly amazing.
