Updating the old for posterity

The article taken from the BBC program “Click” talks about the digital processes used on old classic Hollywood films to retouch them and bring them back to their original glory. It sounds like a painstaking process — a human and/or a computer has to go through each film frame by frame several times — but it’s amazing what they can be done to correct stains and scratches. They describe one job in the article that would make some people all giddy with excitement from the chase and other people nauseated from boredom. I honestly am not sure which category I fall into.
