Unfortunately, there are many different widescreen formats, all with slightly differing width and height dimensions, and this creates a problem for broadcasters and viewers. Conventional TV sets have screens of00n almost square shape (4:3), which makes it difficult to transmit a widescreen movie without either losing some of the action or by using the deep "letterbox" technique that produces black bands at at the top and bottom of the screen. —————————————————————————————————— 1/3 PAL programlfs Previews Films Subtitles

For viewers equipped with one of the new widescreen television sets, the problem is considerably reduced but not eliminated, since the widescreen tube shape is 16:9 - and not all widescreen movies are precisely 16:9. 4-Tel l—in index is on page 300 Listings are on pages 301 and 302 —————————————————————————————————— 2/3 PAL prograllbs Previews Films Subtitles
