What are the actual carrier frequencies and color encoding standards used on the various consoles?

A couple of days ago I spent quite a bit of time figuring out how to hook the VCS up to a modern-ish TV with a digital tuner. In the end I figured out that the PAL console uses a carrier frequency of 61.25 MHz. What do the NTSC and SECAM consoles use? I ask in the hope that someone else that searches the internet will come across this thread and be enlightened.

The NTSC ones are switchable between 61.25 MHz and 55.25 MHz. (our channel 3 and 2)
