Surely there was a time when the sky was not blue! If so, when did it turn blue, and what colour may it have been before?

This question - or a very similar one - has been asked before on this forum and one "paul.fr" (whoever that may be) answered :  "Rayleigh scattering"
See http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=7909.0
Maybe he also knows when this started.
