Wondering if there is a recommended shutter angle or other tip for shooting PAL 50p at industrial locations in the US to avoid flicker from location fluorescents?

You basically want to shoot with a 1/60th shutter time for 60 Hz flickering fixtures.  At 25 fps, that would be a 150 degree shutter angle but hopefully your digital camera can be set to select shutter time instead of angle to make it easier.
