in the last few days I've been working on a video that suffers from many problems, one of them is that it's got very 'weak' and washed-out colours.
In order to try to correct this issue, I compared this video to a far superior source, with nice colours, but so far I didn't get any decent result. Would anybody be so kind to help me, please?

(The second one can be quite misleading, because I know that any colour correction won't lead me to that kind of result)

white balance + saturation should help - create histograms to understand nature of difference between those two. You may try to adjust parameters to match histogram of video you consider better.
To me, the over-saturated version looks worse. Simply turning up saturation is probably not going to make it look better. NTSC and PAL color was pretty sketchy to begin with (NTSC was worse), and if this was on consumer videotape, all three formats threw away what little color information was in the original broadcast signal.
I don't have any good suggestions, other than use the better source. Is there a reason you are not doing that?
Thanks a lot for the suggestions, in some spots it looks way way better, but in some other ones it looks too strong, at least in my opinion. I'll post the videos as soon as possible, thanks again
But there's the other show -tagged with '11aug'- which, in my opinion, is even worse than the 4aug. I've managed to clean it up a little bit, but if you are able to suggest something about the colours, once again it would be great.
Here you find the snippets, and sorry for being so rambling.
