" As TV broadcasters gradually switch off their analog transmitters, and viewers update to flat wide screen TVs. through attrition of their ageing analog TV sets . . . " You are in Australia? Here in the US, the digital revolution has long since been fought and lost ( depending on one's perspective ). I can't right off remember when the last analog transmitter was shut down. " Film makers using cameras that only offer 23.976p can convert their footage to 24p with a PC/Mac based video editing software to maintain lip sync (synchronisation). " 23.976p – IS – 24P, it's just running on an ever-so-slightly slower sync frequency ( clock ). For those determined to dub their 23.976p cinematic wonder to film, it's only necessary to run the " camera " or kinescope or whatever one wishes to call it, at the video sync frame rate of 23.976 frames per second. As for interlaced video, I suspect we'll have it around for a very long time due to fast moving subjects such as sports. Interlaced video has A LOT less blurring and strobing than progressive scanning of fast moving objects. Personally I don't understand this passion for " a film look ". Just because we have a nostalgic love for steam rail locomotives, why reject the cleaner, more efficient, modern diesel-electric, or all-electric locomotives?? It's the story that counts, after all ! Before too long the film projectors will be in the corner gathering dust and public venues will be projecting 2K, 4K, or 8K digital offerings which will dazzle the eye with brightness and detail that film simply can not match. By then maybe film prints of today will be relegated to retrospective " art " shows and viewed by a handful of folks as the " golden years ", similarly as such current gatherings look adoringly at the ground breaking black and white movies of the 20's and 30's ??
