Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Red, blue and what other colour make up the three primary colours?



If BC means before Christ, what does AD mean?

Reportedly the oldest film ever made, “Roundhay Garden Scene”, was made in what year?

Which actress said, "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night"?


I'll have the Ferrari in the primary colour red. OK?

As Gentleman said, there are two correct answers, yellow and green....rgren2, had the first correct answer, well done, next question please!

Fuck, can't wait for my prize, it must be huge, with the arguments people are using to take it away from me.

Larry, I respect you most assuredly, but on this you are proposing FAKE News. It is RGB or CMYK. Always has been, always will. Man Up, You made a bad call.

...yes...I would have said I remember back in the old days flying across the Pacific when entertainment was a screen pulled down and a projector playing a movie...and there were 3 colours projected...Red, Blue and fact taking a close look at a colour TV cathode ray would also see Red, Blue and Green pixels...looks like I have to go to Wikipedia to check this out...

There are 3 primary colors: Red, Green and Blue. The secondary colors contain two of the three primaries:

Yellow contains Red and Green
Cyan contains Green and Blue
Magenta contains Red and Blue.

White light contains all 3 primary colors

My Durst enlarger
had a filter pack of
CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW (Blue,Red,Yellow) when combined give WHITE light.

Larry ... there are two correct answers to the question ...

1. Science viewpoint ... green
2. Art viewpoint ....... yellow

Green comes from yellow and blue and is therefore not a primary color.


Larry, please quote a source! RGB is real RBY? Nuts.

Larry! are you getting senile? RGB = Red, Green & Blue. The three primary colours. MGYK the three subtractive colours - Magenta Cyan and Yellow,plus black, because those other 3 can't really make black. PULEESE!

The 3 Primary colours are RED BLUE GREEN

Those are the only colours that the human eye can detect .. colour cones

all other colours arise from these three colours (secondary colours)

In PAINTING CLASSES they learn otherwise ... hence the confusion with yellow (pigments)

the primary colors normally used are red, green and blue (but the precise visible light spectra for each color can vary significantly). In a subtractive set of colors, as in mixing of pigments or dyes for printing, the colors magenta, yellow and cyan

The additive primary colors are red, green and blue and the subtractive colors are cyan, magenta and yellow. The layers in color film are cyan, magenta and yellow through which white light (a mixture of red, green and blue) passes and these layers "subtract" various amounts of red, green and blue to give the desired final color.

RBY or
Cyan, magenta and yellow

"Primary Colours are the root of every other hue . The primary pigments used in the manufacture of paint come from the pure source element of that Hue. There are no other pigments blended in to alter the formula.

Think of the 3 Primaries as the Parents in the family of colours.

In paint pigments, pure Yellow, pure Red, & pure Blue are the only hues that can’t be created by mixing any other colors together.
Printer inks and digital primaries are referred to as Yellow, Magenta and Cyan.

"Media that combine emitted lights to create the sensation of a range of colors are using the additive color system.
Additive mixing of red & green light = shades of yellow, orange, or brown.
Green & blue = shades of cyan.
Red & blue = shades of purple or magenta.

green - check the color of the dots on the TV
