Default Early Pye colour camera

I was sent this picture by Norman Green. It's from a 1958 TV annual. The question is what sort of camera? It's not big enough for 3x Image Orthicons. Hardly even big enough for a single IO plus vidicons. If it's rotating disc, where's the disc. The blurb in the picture talks about 3 tubes, one each for RGB but that might not relate specifically to this camera, more a statement of principles.

I think it's based on the Pye Mk3 IO camera.

Is it possible that the camera is monochrome - in the hope that no one would know the difference?

It is this one, I think:

It could have a wheel, centered at the point where the turret's center is, with the pickup tube located behind one of the top lens locations.
