* TheBBC's 1960s WorldWarOne documentary series ''The Great War'' was one of (if not the) first to show silent footage at a more realistic speed. This had the incidental benefit of making the limited footage available go further, although it still had to be fleshed out with post-war reconstructions.

fps. [[note]]TV systems in many countries outside the Americas and Japan scan at 25 fps, so films are sped up to the same speed to avoid juddering once per second.[[/note]]

* Thames Television's documentary series ''Hollywood'' begins with a contrasty, blurred and scratchy clip of an old silent comedy, shown at the wrong speed and accompanied by a tinkly piano score. This is then followed by a good-quality version of the same clip, slowed down and accompanied by an orchestra. The contrast is dramatic.

The early assumption that ''all'' silent films were shot at 16 fps led to further complications. In practice, some films were shot at as few as 14 or as many as 26-30 fps. It is believed, for example, that Film/{{Metropolis}} was shot at around 20 fps, and there is still much debate about its correct projection speed.
