I've got few questions about TV broadcasting from 35mm film stock.

 

What device is (was) used for transforming the 35mm film to the TV signal?

 

How is called the film stock designed to broadcast on TV, not for screening in cinemas?

 

In what period of time was used 35mm stock to broadcast on TV? Was some TV shows broadcasted from 35mm film even in 90s or 00s?

 

I hope my question is in correct subforum.

You transfer film to video with a telecine.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecine

 

They use the same film stock to shoot for both TV and the cinema, they have different workflows to create prints for the cinema.

 

So far as I'm aware, they're still shooting 35mm film on a few TV dramas, although most are now shot on digital cameras..The big change over came in the 2000's

Before the widespread use of videotape, 35mm and 16mm films were broadcast
on television via a system known as a film chain.  Basically, it was a film projector

feeding directly into a video camera.

If you google, 'film chain,' you can get all the history on it.
