It has been over 50 years since television started broadcasting in colour in the United Kingdom.

It turns out, some Brits haven't got the memo.

There are over 7,000 people across the UK who have licenses for black and white television sets.

The BBC reports that London has the most, with 1,768 licenses. 

The figures have been released by the TV Licensing, reminding people they still must pay the annual fee that all Brits must pay to access television services.

Shockingly, there were still over 200,000 licenses for black and white televisions as recently as 2000.
