A number of British TV series such as Inspector Morse, Prime Suspect and A Touch of Frost all of which were originally filmed on Standard 16mm film have recently been cropped for widescreen presentation.
It appears that they have all been cropped identically making some scenes obviously mis-framed.
I understand that FRIENDS has also been re-transferred in Wide-Screen format but looks pretty good, most scenes look correctly framed.
Does anybody have any further info on this. I understand that the British series are shown on PBS network in the States.
