I have a couple of JVC monitors with BNC composite video connectors.
These are the monitors salvaged from a video editing suite... I actually
saw BNC used for composite video on a fairly regular basis in the TV
studios (I think I saw that more often then seeing RCA connectors)

You can buy a BNC to RCA adaptor from places like Radio Shack (or even a
BNC to RCA cable... although I am not sure Rat Shack stocks those
anymore... might be special order). Or, like you say, it is fairly
trivial to build a custom BNC to RCA cable.
