Correcting white balance in Premiere 5

Is it too late, or is there a white balance plug-in for Premiere 5?

Ok, I know the white balance should have been set up correctly in camera, but I've now got a two camera shoot with completely different colour balances.

I can't seem to get the hang of adjusting the colour balance through the Premiere colour balance filter - is there a way to pick the colour you want to be white and balance the rest of the colours around that? Or does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get around the problem?

Thanks in advance...

I've certainly done it in Premiere 5 with the color balance filter, and I don't know of a better way. You'll probably never get it quite right, but at least it should be usable.
