By a strange coincidence, about 8 hours after you posted this
I was being shown an IBA DICE convertor in an outbuilding on
the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border!
It is not currently in full working order.

Wasn't all the video signal from the first moon landing in monochrome
(and therefore neither PAL nor NTSC)?
Yes. The TV camera on Apollo 11 was monochrome. They took a colour
camera (spinning filter type) on Apollo 12 but carelessly pointed it
at the sun within the first few minutes, which roasted half the target
of the vidicon tube and rendered it useless. All subsequent missions
used colour cameras.
Today it seems crazy that they didn't think of using colour for all of
them, but maybe they underestimated the importance of showing what
they were doing to the public.
On the contrary I think making the whole thing into entertainment with
live TV just meant that the public got bored with seeing the same thing
every time with minor variations like the moon buggies and jumping very
high in the low gravity and playing golf.
That's not the effect it had on me. I was spellbound by every moment
of it that they showed us. IMHO what has rendered the public bored by
fuzzy shots of real science is all the high quality graphic
representations of it, lately by means of computers, showing such
things as meteorites and asteroids depicted as flaming fireballs
whizzing through space and making whooshing noises as they go past.
What *should* make a scientific achievement impressive is an
understanding of the difficulties the scientists face and the
ingenuity and diligence that it takes to overcome them, but these days
I think a lot of people judge how impressive something is by how well
it compares with Hollywood movies and video games. The most important
missing component is understanding.
