    Afaik this is from Switzerland, anyone know what process it is? I assume it's C-22 due to the era of the company, got one roll needing processing.

    Telcolor were made by Tellko in Switzerland.

    Tellko is now Ilford Imaging.

    Telcolor was not based on C-22 but on the Agfacolor principle. It was spectrally universal sensitized. For neutral-density vs. colour-density gradation tweaking it got a silvermask.

    If it is not C-22, then what process is the film?

    A proprietory Tellko process.

    There had been uncountable colour processes back then. We are lucky that meanwhile basically only two processes remain.

    But you are right in indicating that C-22 was the first process to be used by several manufacturers worldwide; however Tellko did not join.
